Police,Protesters Fill Resorts for G-7 08/20 06:15

   BIARRITZ, France (AP) -- French police are setting up checkpoints and 
combing Atlantic beaches to secure the southwestern coast for world leaders 
coming for the G-7 summit.

   Protesters, too, are setting up camp in towns near the Spanish border to 
prepare actions during the Aug. 24-26 gathering of major world democracies.

   U.S. President Donald Trump will join host French President Emmanuel Macron 
and the leaders of Britain, Germany, Japan, Canada and Italy in the elegant 
resort town of Biarritz.

   Authorities are closing all air, train and road traffic to Biarritz to clear 
the way for the leaders. That's frustrating local businesses at the height of 
Europe's summer travel season.

   Blocked from Biarritz, activists are planning events down the coast in 
Hendaye and Urrugne, and in the Spanish town of Irun, to protest economic 
injustice, climate change and other concerns.
