Eleven protesters who blocked traffic on the 10th Avenue Bridge in Minneapolis were arrested Thursday afternoon on misdemeanor charges.

The arrests followed a march of about 400 people demanding jobs and public works investments, as part of a national Day of Action associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The march began at the University of Minnesota and featured union members and religious groups, among others.

Reporter Randy Furst will have more on this developing story.
