Seattle: Police say 10 people in a Wall Street related protest have been arrested at a Seattle park.

The Occupy Seattle protesters were detained after Westlake Park closed late Thursday night.

Detective Mark Jamieson says the arrests came as police focused on protesters associated with a tent in the park who did not comply with orders to leave.

Like their counterparts elsewhere in the country, the Seattle protesters blame corporate interests for the economic pain they say all but the wealthiest Americans are enduring.

Earlier, some protesters gathered outside a downtown hotel where Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney had a private fundraiser.
