FACTORIA, Wash. -- Police arrested about 15 people at a protest outside the Walmart at the Bellevue Factoria Mall Friday.

About 100 protesters rallied outside the Walmart, calling for better wages for workers. The peaceful protest blocked streets and prompted traffic to be rerouted to 124th and Factoria Blvd.

Bellevue police officers arrived at the scene and asked the protesters to disperse. Police said most of the protesters complied, but about a dozen protesters remained blocking the street.

Police said 15 people were arrested without incident.
