Police raid U of T campus

Update: At least 70 protesters arrested

Early Sunday, police raided a building on the University of Toronto campus. At least 50 people, not believed to be students, have been arrested and charges are pending. (Update: The number of arrested has risen to at least 70.)

A spokesman for the Integrated Security Unit says officers have found a cache of “street-type weaponry” such as bricks. Dozens of officers were combing bushes and garbage cans, collecting articles of black clothing

A G20 demonstration turned violent Saturday when a peaceful protest was infiltrated by anarchists who deployed the so-called Black Bloc tactic. The latest arrests brings the number of people in detention to more than 500.
