United States President Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of National Guard troops from the streets of Washington on Sunday after days of protests against police's murder of George Floyd.
"I just ordered our National Guard to start withdrawing from Washington, DC after everything is under perfect control," he tweeted.
"They will go home, but can return quickly if necessary. Last night, far fewer demonstrators showed up than expected!"
Tens of thousands of people peacefully protested in many U.S. cities on Saturday.
No noteworthy incidents were reported in Washington when demonstrators took to the streets near the White House, which was surrounded on all sides by fences and security barricades.
Sometimes violent protests have hit the country in Minneapolis, Minnesota since the death of a black man, George Floyd, by a white cop who knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes.
