Demonstrations near the site of the NATO summit in Chicago have turned violent, as police and protestors clashed just blocks from McCormick Place, where the summit is being held.
The altercations began as an anti-war rally was winding down, and police ordered the crowd to disperse. A statement from the Chicago Police Department says many in the crowd ignored those orders.
News video appears to show the protestors surging against the line of police in riot gear, and police responding with force. But some protestors who say they were injured in the melee insist they were gathered peacefully and had done nothing to provoke the response.
