Occupy Minneapolis protesters must remove items from plaza


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Hennepin County authorities said Friday that it's time for anti-Wall Street protesters who have been occupying a plaza outside the government center in Minneapolis to begin removing their items from the grounds.

Officials gave protesters a 10 a.m. deadline, and as of Friday morning, it appeared protesters were complying and clearing out supplies such as tables, backpacks and donated items they have been storing at the plaza since the occupation began Oct. 7.
