Police have detained at least 9.3 thousand protesters in the US, Associated Press reported based on its own calculations.
LA is the first in terms of the number of people detained- about 2.7 thousand people, leaving behind New York with about 1.5 thousand detainees.
Several hundred protesters have been detained in Dallas and Houston and Philadelphia.
This figure will clearly grow in the coming days, as rallies and riots continue. To prevent riots, tear gas, and stun grenades have been used, TASS reported.
