Police used tear gas as protesters lit fire during a new round of protests over the presence and actions of federal forces using force against demonstrators in Portland, in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Portland has seen 61 consecutive days of protests, which started in late May following the death of George Floyd and gained traction over the past few days as federal officers were deployed sparking renewed tensions.

During the latest protests, federal officers used tear gas and force to try to disperse large crowds of protesters outside the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse.

US President Donald Trump has said he might send law enforcement to other cities to defend federal buildings from “anarchists and agitators”.
