Canadian police have arrested more than 100 people in the capital, Ottawa while trying to disperse demonstrators protesting Covid restrictions. Officers have cleared demonstrators from one part of the city and hauled away vehicles blocking the capital's core. Police have charged protesters with assaultive behavior. Footage on social media shows that some demonstrators have been pepper-sprayed and others trampled by police on horseback. Authorities say it may take days to fully remove the protesters and tractor-trailer trucks.
