German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned protesters against the use of violence ahead of next month's Group of Eight summit. Merkel's government has stressed it welcomes peaceful demonstrations during the June 6-8 meeting of G-8 leaders to be held in the Baltic sea resort of Heiligendamm, but launched a series of security measures aimed a cracking down on radical anti-globalization protesters.
