    A far-right march on Saturday in Portland, Oregon, has been shut down by local police for violence in which several protesters have been injured, according to local reports.

    Armed Trump supporters from several US right-wing groups marching to assert their right to free speech clashed not only with counter demonstrators nearby but also with local and state police, prompting the shutdown.

    Police used flashbang grenades in attempts to disperse the crowd, and have set off teargas at counter protesters as well, according to the Portland Mercury.
