George Floyd protests: Donald Trump says 'something snapped' in police officer accused of murder

Three far-right extremists arrested by an anti-terror unit at Las Vegas protests have been charged with inciting violence.

The men allegedly belong to the Boogaloo movement, which has adopted Hawaiian shirts as a uniform and which promotes "a coming civil war and/or collapse of society", said a Nevada federal prosecutor.

Nevada prosecutor Nicholas Trutanich said violent instigators had hijacked peaceful protests and demonstrations across the country, including Nevada - "exploiting the real and legitimate outrage" over George Floyd's death "for their own radical agendas".

Reports of far-right activists, sometimes heavily armed, infiltrating the protests over the past week have included several claiming to be part of the Boogaloo movement.

Stephen Parshall, 35, Andrew Lynam, 23, and William Loomis, 40, all live in Las Vegas where they were arrested on Saturday by an anti-terror unit headed by the FBI.

They were allegedly in possession of a molotov cocktail when they were detained, Mr Trutanich said.

If convicted on federal charges, the men face up to 30 years in prison. They were also indicted on terrorism conspiracy and other charges by state officials.
