Dozens of people were hurt as German police and anti-capitalist demonstrators clashed Thursday in Hamburg during a march protesting the upcoming Group of 20 summit.

As U.S. President Donald Trump met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday afternoon, thousands of protesters gathered in the historic Hamburg Fish Market and confronted police, some tossing bottles. Police responded with water cannons, pepper spray and batons.

Nearly 75 police officers were injured throughout the evening, with three requiring treatment at a hospital, police said. The pilots of a police helicopter sustained eye injuries when laser pointers were directed at them, police said.

Medics were also seen assisting injured protesters on the sidelines of the march.Thousands of people are taking part in protests against the G-20 economic summit, which will be held Friday and Saturday.
