Protesters still under arrest in US

Journalist Aaron Cantu is among 59 defendants still facing the grim prospect of decades behind bars after being arrested at a protest during US President Donald Trump's inauguration last year.

On Friday afternoon, Cantu's lawyers filed a motion to dismiss the charges against the reporter, arguing that moving forward with his prosecution would "set a dangerous precedent for journalists", according to the filing.

"The indictment does not contain any specific allegations that Mr Cantu himself engaged in any violent or destructive acts," the filing reads.
