No arrests at 2 protests against police brutality

SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle police say there were no arrests as a group of self-identified anarchists staged a march against police brutality.

About 30 protesters wearing scarves, masks and paint on their faces marched Friday from a Capitol Hill park through downtown and back up the hill. Dozens of police accompanied them.

The Seattle Times reports ( http://is.gd/Mcscti) that a similar gathering at City Hall Park drew an estimated three dozen protesters to what organizers called the "March 15th International Day Against Police Brutality."
