In downtown Toronto, police have arrested over 500 protesters to bring the situation under control. Police said they hoped protests on Sunday would be quiet. But when they lost control of a violent and fast-moving crowd, the arrests came quickly.
The arrested included four who climbed through the sewer system and emerged near the lock-down area where world leaders are attending the G20 summit. And a large number of people were detained in a raid at the University of Toronto's downtown campus. The riots started Saturday afternoon after groups of masked anarchists broke away from a larger peaceful demonstration.
