Iowa City approves anti-Wall Street protest tents

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa City has approved a request from anti-Wall Street protesters for larger tents.

The City Council last week granted a four-month permit to protesters to continue camping in a downtown park. The permit has certain restrictions, including tents designed for sleeping six or less.

Protesters have been in College Green Park since Oct. 7 as part of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
