ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ten people have been arrested in St. Louis during a protest of bankruptcy proceedings that they say jeopardizes pension and health care benefits for some 20,000 retirees and dependents.
 
The United Mine Workers of America led the protest Wednesday outside of the St. Louis headquarters of Peabody Energy, one of the nation's largest coal companies and one of the companies the union accuses of orchestrating business deals that bankrupted Patriot Coal.
 
About 1,000 people took part in the protest. United Mine Workers of America Secretary Treasurer Dan Kane and nine others were peacefully arrested after sitting in the street in front of Peabody's headquarters.
 
Patriot spokeswoman Janine Orf says the benefits cuts are part of the effort to save the company.
