Police arrest protesters at NZ Parliament

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND (AP) – Police yesterday arrested dozens of protesters who were camped out on the grounds of New Zealand’s Parliament on the third day of a  convoy protest against coronavirus mandates.

The arrests came after Parliament Speaker Trevor Mallard took the rare step of closing the grounds.

Police called in more than 100 extra officers from other parts of the country. Still, police seemed prepared to wait it out as officers formed a line and ordered people to leave but only very slowly advanced on them.
