USA: Portland descends into chaos amid violent clashes between police and protesters

Police and protesters continued to clash violently in Portland on Saturday night, as officers fired tear gas against demonstrators who had damaged fences. One visibly distressed woman appeared to be resisting arrest by kicking officers armed with batons, as they attempted to detain her. Portland has been rocked by a wave of protests and unrest ever since demonstrations against racism and police brutality started a couple of months ago, with episodes of violence on the rise ever since federal agents were deployed by US President Donald Trump to tackle the incidents. The White House has defended the use of force against protesters and accused local authorities of having «lost control» of the city.
