U.S. Authorities consider the attack on police during protests as acts of domestic terrorism. This was during a press conference said acting Deputy Minister of internal security of the United States Ken Cucinelli, reports TASS.
He also pointed out that in this way we consider not only the harm, law enforcement officers, but the attempts to intimidate them.
Earlier it was reported that when the protesters clash with the police, two officers were injured, one of them later died. There have also been reports of vandalism, burglary, arson and attacks on law enforcement officers.
the US President Donald trump has threatened the protesters with dozens of arrests and the use of military force. He also urged local governors and mayors to be tougher against the rioters. Otherwise, said trump intervenes the Federal government.
Dozens of U.S. cities covered protests accompanied by riots, which began after the death in Minneapolis of a black guard to George Floyd, who died after a rough arrest. Protests against police brutality held in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, new York, Indianapolis, Boston, Detroit and many other cities.
