Washingtonpost.com's Travis Fox is covering the protests and filed this video today:

Protesters march down Eye Street, meeting police at the intersection of Eye and 18th Streets. Protesters fled the scene after police dispersed gas. Some of the protesters got as far as 18th and K Streets before being arrested. Later that day, protesters force a standoff with police at Pennsylvania Avenue and 19th Street. The police strike a deal with protesters to break the stalemate. Under the terms of the deal, protesters are allowed to walk through the barricades surrounding the perimeter of the World Bank before being arrested. A student from New York, who is about to cross the barricades, claims the protesters have won a moral victory.
