Kentucky students still jailed after protest

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Two University of Kentucky journalism students remained jailed, more than a day after they were swept up with nearly 300 others during protests in downtown St. Paul.

Police arrested students Edward C. Matthews and Britney D. McIntosh along with their newspaper adviser Jim Winn on Monday afternoon. Winn was released around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday. All came to the Twin Cities to document protests held in response to the Republican National Convention, meeting this week in St. Paul.

The three arrested are affiliated with the University of Kentucky student newspaper, the Kentucky Kernel. Matthews is a photographer, McIntosh is the multimedia editor and Winn is the paper's photo adviser.
