Eyewitness footage showed the shocking moment when a climate change activist's head was nearly run over by a police van during his arrest in Vienna, Austria, May 31. Further footage obtained by Reuters appeared to show police officers repeatedly striking another activist during a separate arrest. Austrian prosecutors said they would be investigating four police officers for allegedly using excessive force during the protests, according to reports in the local media. The incident happened during a “Fridays for Future” protest in the Austrian capital that was headed by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg. (Reuters)
