    Protests, which erupted in the US city following the death of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, have got out of control, with rioters launching fireworks, setting fire to police precincts and vandalising city property.

    Nightly protests have continued in the US city of Portland, Oregon, where President Donald Trump sent federal law enforcement agents to help maintain law and order and to protect the federal courthouse, the focus of ongoing protests over the last several weeks.

    Dozens of reporters have been injured by law enforcement officers while reporting on the unrest in the city.
