Canada police clear 'Freedom Convoy' trucks from Ambassador Bridge

DW News on Youtube shows that Canadian police have broken up protests against coronavirus restrictions, which had been blocking an important trade route with the USA. A blockade of trucks and cars had stopped the flow of commerce across Windsor's Ambassador Bridge - North America's busiest border crossing. But, demonstrators at a larger protest are still occupying parts of the Canadian capital Ottawa.

After a week-long standoff at the Ambassador Bridge, police in Windsor, Ontario, have arrested dozens of protesters and cleared away vehicles that had blocked the vital highway.

The situation in Canada's capital, Ottawa, remains far from resolved. Trucks block the city center and protesters camp out in front of Parliament.
