Saying Zuccotti Park had become a health and safety hazard, a large contingent of police officers in riot gear ordered the Occupy Wall Street protestors to clear the area early Tuesday morning.

The cops said protestors, who have been living in tents in the privately owned park across from Ground Zero for almost two months, would be allowed to return once the area was cleared and the park's sanitary conditions could be assessed, Newsday reported.
