Hundreds of demonstrators marched through the streets of Berkeley Tuesday night, briefly blocking traffic on a highway and delaying metro and train services.

Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates canceled a scheduled City Council meeting after threats to disrupt it.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the protests became sporadically destructive over several hours.
