Police dodge fire bombs as Portland protesters mark 100 straight days

• By Stephen Dinan

Officers say they arrested more than 50 people — the most for any night since near-nightly protests broke out 100 days ago, after George Floyd's death in Minneapolis sparked demands for racial justice and anti-police demonstrations.

Demonstrators pelted police with rocks taken from the tracks of a commuter railway, and officers said they saw one person with a "wrist rocket" slingshot firing objects at them.
