Police, Protesters Clash Outside NATO Summit

CHICAGO (AP) — Police and protesters are clashing near the site of the NATO summit in Chicago.

A large crowd of protesters pushed against a line of Chicago police dressed in riot gear, blue helmets and face shields. Some of the officers were striking out at the crowd with batons. Members of the crowd threw large sticks, liquids and bottles at the police.

Police were pulling individual protesters out of the crowd, handcuffing them and carrying them away by their limbs. At least one protester had blood on the left side of his head.
