US cities react to President Trump’s decision to deploy federal security forces
President Trump has said he wants to deploy federal law enforcement to a number of cities across the US to put a stop to violent crime. Law and order has become a key plank of Mr Trump’s re-election bid in November. Also: US prosecutors say the Chinese consulate in San Francisco is harbouring a Chinese military researcher who’s wanted by the FBI, and the Israeli parliament has voted through the first stage of a draft law which would ban so-called «gay conversion» therapy.
