SEATTLE (AP) — Five people accused of taking part in vandalism and violence during the May Day march in Seattle have been charged with rioting, malicious mischief or assault.

The four men and one woman from the Seattle area were charged Nov. 20 after they were identified through photos and videos posted online by police. They include one man wearing Nike shoes who was part of the group vandalizing the Nike retail store.

Marchers also broke windows at other stores and banks, damaged cars, started a fire outside a federal courthouse and assaulted officers.

The seattlepi.com reports (http://is.gd/p2NhZF ) the FBI continues to investigate a group of anarchists from Oregon believed to have planned the violence.
