Dozens of police injured in G20 protests as Merkel seeks consensusBy Joseph Nasr and Andreas Rinke HAMBURG (Reuters) – Dozens of police were injured in clashes with protesters before a G20 summit in Hamburg on Thursday, tarnishing the start of a meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel hopes will cement her role as a stateswoman as she seeks re-election in September.
