DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Durham police arrested 11 people in a nighttime protest that was part of a national wave demonstrations of killings by police.

Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said in a news release that about 50 protesters Saturday night marched on several streets near downtown and Duke University’s East Campus. She says the protesters blocked traffic as they marched on several streets and were ordered to disperse as they approached the Durham Freeway.

Michael says most of the protesters were charged with impeding traffic and failure to disperse.

Media accounts say the protesters chanted “Black Lives Matter!” and “Hands up! Don’t Shoot!”
