Woman occupy vancouver drug overdose- A woman has died of a suspected heroin overdose at Occupy Vancouver as violence escalated at camps across America over the weekend, arousing concerns the protests may claim more victims. The Mayor of Vancouver Gregor Robertson called for the camp to be closed down after the woman's body was found on Saturday. She was said to be in her twenties and found in a tent by another protestor. She was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.

On Thursday, a man went into cardiac arrest at the Vancouver site, also from a suspected overdose, but was rescued by a first aider until paramedics arrived. Mr Robertson said the city is considering a number of options that include a possible injunction to end the encampment but that they want to do it as safely as possible. Meanwhile it emerged that Kayvan Sabeghi, the second Iraq war veteran beaten by police during the confrontations in Oakland, was not actually a protestor but was simply trying to make his way home after having dinner with friends. The 32-year old was arrested and charged with resisting arrest and remaining present at a riot and was only hospitalised when he was eventually freed on bail, despite telling police he needed medical help.
