LOS ANGELES - Hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters who have camped out at Los Angeles City Hall for nearly eight weeks were warned by the city on Wednesday that they would be evicted next week with 72 hours of notice, their representatives said.

Word of the planned eviction, which Occupy LA organizers said they were told would come as early as Monday, surfaced a day after protesters rejected what they described as a city offer to give them indoor space, farmland and other concessions as an inducement to vacate City Hall voluntarily.

Neither police nor a spokesman for the mayor could confirm that protesters had been given an eviction deadline.
