Occupy Wall Street protesters have celebrated Christmas with prayers and a reading of a Martin Luther King speech in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park.

Police evicted protesters from the privately owned public space in November.

Christmas Day at Zuccotti - the 100th day of the first demonstrations - started with a prayer service in the park. Breakfast was served in the morning.

At noon yesterday, a 1967 speech by King was read - one in which the civil rights leader expressed opposition to the Vietnam War.

Other Christmas activities at Zuccotti Park included music and a poetry reading.
