Seattle, Portland to have curfews Sunday following riots

SEATTLE (AP) — Dozens of people were arrested in Seattle and Portland, Oregon, as protests over the killing of George Floyd turned violent, with looters smashing up storefronts and mayors in both cities again issuing curfew orders for Sunday evening. Police in Seattle arrested at least 27 people Saturday on charges such as assault and looting while Portland police arrested 48 people after downtown storefronts were vandalized and fires were set. Seattle had a 5 p.m. curfew Saturday and Portland’s was 8 p.m. Those curfews for the entire cities will remain in place for Sunday, officials said. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee dispatched the National Guard to the state’s largest city to help maintain order.
