DNC Apologizes For 'Inexcusable Remarks'; Subway Service To Arena Station Suspended [View all]

PHILADELPHIA — The Latest on the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia:

4:50 p.m.

Philadelphia’s transit agency has shut down service to the subway station that serves the arena where the Democratic convention is being held due to “security measures” as protesters marched outside.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said southbound service will end on the Broad Street line at Oregon Avenue, one stop before the final station, until further notice. The agency said there was northbound service from the convention site station.

Police were extending metal fences to the edge of the sidewalk outside of the station to keep protesters from advancing.

Protesters chanted “Nonviolent! Peaceful protest!” while trying to make their way over the fences.

4:45 p.m.

The Democratic National Committee is offering its “deep and sincere apology” to Bernie Sanders, his supporters and the entire party for what it calls “the inexcusable remarks made over email.”
