Officers in full riot gear used pepper spray and sound bombs to disperse the protesters. In return, the demonstrators hurled stones at the police. According to Washington’s police department, more than 200 protesters were detained during the rallies. Earlier, thousands of people also gathered in New York City and Portland to protest against the inauguration of Trump.
