Washington's mass snowball fight

Several hundred Washington DC residents squared off in a massive snowball fight as a blizzard continued to bear down on the city on Saturday.

Billed on social networking websites as a battle between the city's north and south, participants gathered at Dupont Circle, an area surrounded by popular cafes and restaurants.

Hundreds of people entered the circle, some carrying pre-made snowballs, before battle commenced.
