US violent protest: Washington DC Mayor extends curfew for 15 days

by Kunle Awosiyan

Mayor of Washington DC Muriel Bowser has extended the curfew imposed on the US capital city for 15 days until after January 20 inauguration day.

Mayor Bowser had clarified on the attack by some pro-Trump supporters on the joint session of the US congress that many of the hoodlums came to DC armed and for the purpose of engaging in violence and destruction.

While stating that the protesters fired chemical irritants, bricks, bottles and guns, she explained that the public emergency extension will allow the city to draw upon additional resources to protect residents, like enforcing curfews, expanding emergency services or distributing necessities.
