BOSTON - Police arrested dozens of people early Saturday as they cleared away the remaining Occupy Boston encampment in the city's financial district in a mostly peaceful action.

Authorities, including more than 100 police officers, swept into the area before sunrise, when many of the campers were asleep, and sealed off the streets. Some 32 men and 14 women, were arrested, mostly for trespassing.

"For the most part it went well for them," police spokesman Eddy Chrispin told Reuters.

Much of the tightly packed Occupy tent city had been dismantled before a Thursday night deadline set by Mayor Thomas Menino. The mayor had ordered the protesters to clear the camp after a judge ruled they did not have the right to occupy the square.
