From Al-Jazeera…

Clashes have left at least 150 police officers injured after thousands of people marched through the northern German port city of Rostock on Saturday to protest against the forthcoming Group of Eight meeting of industrialised powers.

The summit will be hosted by Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, in Heiligendamm, 25km west of Rostock.

Some covered their heads and faces with black hoods, sunglasses and scarves, while others chanted protest slogans through megaphones, blowing whistles and waving flags.

Groups of protesters attacked police cars with rocks, bottles and paint bombs, authorities said.

They said a hotel where a US delegation is supposed to stay during the G8 summit was also attacked.

Rocks and broken beer bottles lay on the ground in front of a bank building where protesters smashed half a dozen windows.
