MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police have arrested four protesters who sat in the middle of a downtown Milwaukee intersection during a demonstration calling for more diversity at Marquette University.

Those arrested were among several dozen demonstrators who gathered Monday. Milwaukee police say two women and two men were arrested.
