20 arrested at asylum camp protest - Danish police
Danish police have fired tear gas and arrested at least 20 activists during a large anti-racist protest staged at the country's main camp for asylum-seekers, the Associated Press reported.
Police spokesman Henrik Suhr said there were no reports of injuries.
Footage from Danish broadcaster TV2 showed large clouds of smoke after police fired tear gas into parts of the crowd when a small group broke away to run toward the camp fence.
Suhr said between 1,000 and 1,500 people attended Saturday's protest at Sandholm, a former military barracks-turned-asylum center located 15 miles ( 25 kilometers) north of Copenhagen. He said most of them dispersed after the arrests.
The "Shut Down The Camp" action was staged to protest Denmark's treatment of refugees.
