Occupy protesters in Washington DC defy police deadline

Occupy protesters have defied a noon police deadline to remove their camps or face arrest in Washington DC.

They have erected a "tent of dreams" around a statue in McPherson Square as part of their protest against eviction.

The camps at McPherson Square and Freedom Plaza are the group's most visible sites after the one in New York was cleared out in November.
