Protest Cleanup Is Being Postponed

NEW YORK (AP) - The deputy mayor of New York City says a planned cleaning of the protest encampment in lower Manhattan has been postponed.

The protesters had said the planned cleanup at 7 a.m. was merely a pretext to evict them.

They've been camped out there for a month in a protest over wealth distribution that has inspired similar demonstrations across the globe.

Supporters streamed into the plaza early Friday before the announcement. There was a strong police presence, and a showdown between protesters and authorities had been feared.
