Portland: Protests against police brutality persist

The US Justice Department said on Thursday it would investigate the use of force by federal agents against protesters in Portland.

US federal agents sent to Portland by President Donald Trump have again fired tear gas at protesters and made arrests.

Demonstrators have rallied every night for eight weeks demanding racial equality and police reforms.

Leaders in Oregon state say the agents are only making things worse.
