Anti-Trump inauguration protests break out in U.S.

Donald Trump has been sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, while anti-Trump protesters clashed with police in the capital. The number of protests against and rallies for Trump taking place on Friday is far above what has been typical at recent US presidential inaugurations. In Washington DC, protesters were pepper-sprayed by police officers in sporadic clashes. About 28,000 security personnel, kilometres of fencing, street barricades, and trucks laden with sand were part of the security cordon around eight-square kilometres of central Washington for the ceremony.
