Protesters clash with police officers in Lafayette park

U.S. Park Police officers move in and clash with demonstrators protecting other protestors trying to pull down the statue of U.S. President Andrew Jackson in the middle of Lafayette Park in front of the White House during racial inequality protests in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Monday. Protesters failed to remove the statue of Jackson, in a bid to destroy monuments of historical figures considered to be racist and divisive.
