Washington police arrested more than 90 people involved in protests against the inauguration of President Donald Trump on Friday, a spokesman said.

"We have arrested approximately 95 people," said Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Lt. Sean Conboy, saying they were arrested for "vandalism and destruction of property." 

Conboy said two police officers were hurt during confrontations with the protestors.
