HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) -- Officers have arrested about 20 pro-sovereignty activists after the second takeover this year of the grounds of a Honolulu palace.
State law officers climbed a fence and made the arrests Saturday at the historic Iolani Palace.
About a dozen men had locked the palace gates Friday evening and posted signs saying: "Property of the Kingdom of Hawaiian Trust."
Hawaiian activists have long used the palace as a location for protests against U.S. occupation of the islands. A different group occupied the palace grounds in April.
