Hundreds protest, German gov’t voices concerns


SHARMEL-SHEIKH,EGYPT>> Hundreds of environmen­tal activists on Saturday called on industrial­ized nations at the U.N. climate summit in Egypt to pay for the impact of global warming, the largest demonstrat­ion yet that came as German officials raised concerns about possible surveillan­ce and intimidati­on of delegates and other conference attendees. Protests have mostly been muted at the conference. Activists blamed high cost of travel, accommodat­ion and restrictio­ns in the isolated city for limiting numbers of demonstrat­ors. The protesters marched through the conference’s ‘Blue Zone,’ which is considered United Nations territory and governed by the global body’s rules.
