New Delhi: The wait for the new Honda City is over now. As promised, Honda Siel Cars India launched the highly anticipated 2012 City in New Delhi on Wednesday.

The Japanese car makers have slashed the price by Rs 50,000 compared to that of the existing model.

The new Honda City comes with an additional variant named 'Corporate' which is a new addition to its other existing E, S and V models. ‘Corporate’ comes with a price tag of Rs 6.99 lakh. The E variant is priced at Rs 7.70 lakh, while the S model comes at Rs 8.20. The variant V-MT and V-AT is priced at Rs 8.70 and Rs 9.42 lakh respectively.

The old City was priced between Rs 7.49 lakh and Rs 9.89 lakh.

The new Honda City which was first launched in Thailand on September has an electric sun-roof installed in the V variant which will bump up the price tag for the V MT to Rs 9.50 lakh and the V AT to Rs. 10.22 lakh (All prices ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively.

Bookings for the new City will commence immediately at all the Honda dealerships nationwide and deliveries will begin in January 2012.

The company had introduced the current third generation City in 2008 and has sold 1.36 lakh units so far.

The City sales have been facing stiff resistance from other models in the segment such as Hyundai Verna, Maruti SX4 and Volkswagen Vento. While Verna, SX4 and Vento offer both diesel and petrol options, City comes only in petrol variant.

New York: Police reopened the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday evening after more than 700 anti-Wall Street protesters were arrested for blocking traffic lanes and attempting an unauthorized march across the span.

The arrests took place when a large group of marchers, participating in a second week of protests by the Occupy Wall Street movement, broke off from others on the bridge's pedestrian walkway and headed across the Brooklyn-bound lanes.

"Over 700 summonses and desk appearance tickets have been issued in connection with a demonstration on the Brooklyn Bridge late this afternoon after multiple warnings by police were given to protesters to stay on the pedestrian walkway, and that if they took roadway they would be arrested," a police spokesman said.

"Some complied and took the walkway without being arrested. Others proceeded on the Brooklyn-bound vehicular roadway and were. The bridge was re-opened to traffic at 8:05 pm (0005 GMT Sunday)."
