SF Afghanistan War protest

Under the roar of Fleet Week celebrations in San Francisco Saturday, war protestors marked the anniversary of the longest armed conflict in U.S. history. The invasion of Afghanistan started 11 years ago tomorrow.

Hundreds of marchers in downtown San Francisco called for troop withdrawal in a loud, but mostly peaceful demonstration.

One police officer suffered a minor cut when glass fell from a high rise building. Witnesses say a window was broken accidently when the occupant tried to shut it.
