Occupy Wall street: New York's Zuccotti Park cleared in police raid

Activists at the two-month-old camp were told the park would be “cleared and restored” before sunrise – and that anyone who did not comply would be arrested, the New York Times reported. In a Twitter post, the office of Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the protesters could return to the park once it was cleared of tents and tarpaulins.
