Scuffles erupted on Friday (July 7) morning shortly before the official opening of the G20 summit in Hamburg. Anti-G20 protesters were stopped by police as they started their way from Hamburg's landing bridge towards the summit venue with scuffles erupting as protesters tried to make their way past a police blockade. Dozens of police were injured in clashes on Thursday (July 6), tarnishing the start of a meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel hopes will cement her role as a stateswoman as she seeks re-election in September. Protesters damaged cars, set other objects ablaze and threw bottles in roving clashes that lasted until midnight.
