CURFEWS GO INTO EFFECT IN CITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY

Curfews have been instituted around the country on Saturday as mass demonstrations broke out nationwide and cities braced for another night of protests.

“By being out tonight & breaking the 8pm curfew, you are helping the people using crowds as cover to prey on Minneapolis & destroy community,” Mayor Jacob Frey wrote on twitter. The city was also under curfew on Friday night.

Frey said the governor has “fully mobilized” the Minnesota National Guard to respond to demonstrations in the city on Saturday. Violating curfew is punishable by up to a $1000 fine and 90 days in jail, the mayor’s emergency regulation said.
