Dozens of Iraq war protesters attempted to block entrances to the New York Stock Exchange on Monday, hoping to draw attention to the profits made in recent years by military contractors. Forty-four people were arrested on disorderly conduct charges after they sat in and around Wall Street in lower Manhattan, police said.
