Police arrest 7 during Seattle protests

SEATTLE (AP) — Protesters in Seattle took to the streets Tuesday night after police performed a sweep of a homeless camp at a park in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Authorities say seven people were arrested. KOMO reports bout 80-100 people marched over to Seattle Police’s East Precinct building and a few hurled flaming objects over the new fortified walls placed around the building in recent days. Seattle Police, with coordination from the parks department, came to Cal Anderson Park Tuesday morning to clear the tents, beds and other items piled up by people staying here. Police said they also confiscated knives, axe and other weapons and shields in the process.
