Dozen More US Cities Under Curfew
Trump blames Antifa for violence, to designate the left-wing movement as terrorist group


Americans woke up Sunday to charred and glass-strewn streets in dozens of cities after another night of unrest fueled by rage over the mistreatment of African Americans at the hands of police.

President Donald Trump on Sunday said his administration will designate the loose-knit militant anti-fascist network Antifa as a domestic terrorist organisation after accusing of orchestrating the violence.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” the US president tweeted on Sunday morning.

Meanwhile, curfews were imposed in more than a dozen major cities nationwide, including Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, San Francisco and Seattle as violent protests continued Saturday overnight.
