SEATTLE (AP) -- Protesters from Occupy Seattle are marching and blocking intersections in downtown Seattle.

The latest action by group began late afternoon on Tuesday.

Video footage from TV news showed a large crowd of protesters surrounded by police. One video showed officers handcuffing a woman and spraying a group with what looked like pepper spray.

The Occupy Seattle Twitter account tweeted that several people were hit by pepper spray.

Seattle Police spokesman Jeff Kappel says he didn't have any information about confrontations with police.
