Policemen carry away a protester as they close down the Occupy Camp in front of the European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt/Main, western Germany, on May 16, 2012. German authorities cleared out a group of protesters who have camped for months in front of the European Central Bank, ahead of huge anti-capitalism protests expected at the weekend. Some of the demonstrators hurled paint at police who were moving them on after they ignored a request to leave voluntarily.
