April 28, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

More than two dozen protesters were jailed as labor ministers of the Group of 8 leading industrialized nations ended a two-day meeting in Montreal by vowing that all sectors of society should have access to the labor force.

Canadian authorities said 25 people were arrested and 147 fined for joining in an illegal gathering Friday night outside one of the conference venues as riot police used pepper spray to break up a march by protest groups. Police showed reporters gasoline bombs that they said were confiscated from some of those arrested.
