    About 150 individuals protesting against US President-Elect Donald Trump were detained in the center of Los Angeles, local media reported Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The protesters were arrested after ignoring the police order to disperse, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

    ​The demonstration reportedly attracted about 3,000 people, who were marching through the center of the city shouting "Not my president."

    ​Protests erupted in multiple US cities after it became clear on Wednesday that Republican Party nominee Donald Trump would win the presidency, prevailing over his Democratic rival Hilary Clinton.
