23:25, Monday, 01 June, 2020
D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser (D) said Monday that the city is imposing another curfew as it braces for several more days of protests, following a night of “significant” damage, particularly around the White House. Bowser said at a news conference that the curfew would begin at 7 p.m. Monday and run through Tuesday morning, with similar restrictions beginning again Tuesday night and continuing into Wednesday morning. She said unrest and destruction had begun to overshadow protests over the killing of George Floyd. The announcement came as shopkeers began to clean up after a third night of clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement officials amid protests in hundreds of cities across the country. Federal officials planned to send anti-riot teams to the District as well and Metro planned to end bus and rail service early Monday night.
