Police in both Los Angeles and Philadelphia moved in overnight Wednesday to remove Occupy protesters from their encampments near City Hall in both cities. More than 200 people were arrested in Los Angeles. In Philadelphia, police arrested dozens of roving protesters after they were forced to leave their camp in Dilworth Plaza. Sanitation crews quickly moved in to begin cleaning what the protesters left behind. In both Los Angeles and Philadelphia, the operations were relatively peaceful in comparison to other Occupy encampment evictions, which have brought at times violent clashes between protesters and police.
