Protesters Arrested At Halliburton Meeting In Duncan

Updated:
DUNCAN, Okla. (AP) _ Sixteen people were arrested Wednesday outside Houston-based Halliburton's shareholders meeting in Duncan, Oklahoma.

Police first arrested a man on a complaint of destroying private property. He allegedly tore down a barricade used to keep the demonstrators in an area outside the meeting venue.

Fifteen others were handcuffed and arrested as they moved toward the convention hall and ignored police orders to back away.

Critics accuse Halliburton of war profiteering, destruction of the environment and fraud.

Halliburton spokeswoman Cathy Mann says the company has done a good job of supporting American troops overseas.

Shareholders of the world's largest provider of products and services to the petroleum and energy industries looked back on a year of record earnings.

Halliburton earned $2.4-billion in 2005.
