Law and order in focus in US election as riots break out in Pennsylvania

US President Donald Trump has warned civil unrest will become commonplace under a Biden administration after riots and looting broke out after a black man was shot dead by Philadelphia officers on Monday, local time.

His rival, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has told reporters there is “no excuse whatsoever” for the chaos in Philadelphia as he cast his ballot for president with his wife in his hometown in Wilmington, Delaware.

President Trump is trying to highlight law-and-order issues in the run-up to next week’s presidential election as polls show the race is marginally tightening in his favour.
