In Portland, 18 people were detained during the protests

Eighteen people have been detained in Portland, Oregon, since the beginning of the week for participating in protests, the US Justice Department website says.

“US Attorney Billy J. Williams said today that 18 people were detained and will be charged under Federal law this week for their participation in the recent overnight protests… in Portland,” the report said.

According to court documents, riots have been taking place in the city since May 26, with protesters attacking law enforcement officers, destroying property, looting, arson, and vandalism. It is reported that the Mark Hatfield courthouse was heavily damaged in recent days, and protesters attacked security forces who protected the building.

It is noted that all the suspects are residents of Portland; they were released before the court hearings on their cases.
