September 03, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Hundreds of young protesters threw rocks, smashed shop windows and set fires to cars in Copenhagen, Danish police said.

One officer was injured and 63 people were arrested. "Three or four people will be charged for violent behavior against police officers," said police spokesman Flemming Steen Munch. "The others have been released."

The unrest started after a demonstration late Saturday commemorating a makeshift cultural center for the city's anarchists and disaffected youth that was demolished in March.
