NEW YORK (AP) - At least 175 people have been arrested during clashes between police and Occupy Wall Street demonstrators in New York City.

Thousands of protesters took to the streets around the U.S. on Thursday to mark two months since the movement's birth.

One of the largest demonstrations was in New York, where at least 1,000 demonstrators tried to clog up streets around the stock exchange.

Some protesters were bloodied during arrests. Police said an officer suffered a cut on his left hand after a demonstrator threw a piece of glass. He may need stitches.

Five other officers were treated after being hit in the face with stinging liquid.
