MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Police in Minneapolis arrested 11 protesters Thursday for blocking a bridge near the University of Minnesota campus on the two-month anniversary of the birth of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The protest on the 10th Avenue bridge was to call for jobs and racial equality. Nick Muhammad, from a group called Neighborhoods Organizing for Change, said the people arrested sat down in the middle of the bridge.
