Police say 15 people have been arrested during anti-war protests outside the Long Island university campus where the US presidential debate was held last night.
Nassau County Police spokesman Kevin Smith says the 15 protesters were arrested on disorderly conduct charges outside the gates of Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. He says they identified themselves as Iraq war veterans.
Police say they were arrested trying to get onto the campus after they had been turned away from a university gate. They say one person may have received a minor injury and has been taken to a nearby hospital.
About 350 people had gathered outside the campus in the afternoon and were met by mounted police and officers in riot gear.
