In Portland, there are clashes between protesters and Federal agents

Clashes between demonstrators and Federal agents continued in the US city of Portland, where unrest has not subsided for more than 50 days.

Federal agents again used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse hundreds of protesters near the courthouse. This happened after several dozen protesters started shaking the fence around the courthouse and throwing firecrackers and incendiary projectiles over it.

Dozens of people left the area, coughing and rubbing their eyes.

Earlier, a court in the United States refused to impose a temporary ban on Federal law enforcement agencies holding detentions during protests in Portland, which was sought by the Attorney General of the state of Oregon.

In Portland and several other cities in the United States for more than a month, protests have been held, often turning into riots, which began after the death in Minneapolis of African-American George Floyd at the hands of police.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the actions of state and municipal authorities, which, in his opinion, do not take the necessary measures to restore order. In this regard, in some cases, military and Federal police officers were brought into the cities, which caused dissatisfaction with local authorities, who mainly represent the US Democratic Party.
