Protesters injure police at Trump’s rally



Protesters injure police at Trump’s rally
There were chaotic scenes at Donald Trump’s rally in New Mexico which according to reports left scores of police officers injured after they were pelted with a barrage of rocks by angry protesters.
According to reports by ABC, police used pepper spray and smoke grenades to disperse throngs of protesters gathered outside the rally in Albuquerque as several demonstrators were escorted out of the rally Tuesday evening.
At one point, protesters broke through a barricade erected by police, rushing the convention centre where Trump was speaking. While Albuquerque police prevented them from getting inside, police say protesters started to throw rocks and bottles at their horses.
It was Trump’s first campaign event after a brief hiatus from the trail. He last spoke at the NRA’s annual convention after receiving the group’s endorsement on Friday.
