Portland protests: US attorney general to condemn attacks on buildings [View all]

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53563190

US Attorney General William Barr is to say attacks on federal buildings in Portland, Oregon, are "an assault on the government of the United States".

In congressional testimony, America's top law official will defend the Department of Justice's decision to send security forces to the city.

Portland has seen 61 consecutive days of protests, which escalated after federal officers arrived this month.

Mr Barr has been accused by Democrats of politicising the justice department.

The Portland protests began as part of the nationwide racial justice rallies triggered by the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in May.
