Tensions ran high at protests against the police shootings this week in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and in Minnesota after the police shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.

Advocate reporter Bryn Stole was on the scene in Baton Rouge and captured footage of the tense scenes emerging as protesters faced off with Baton Rouge police and state officers. Sterling and Philando Castile, of Falcon Heights, Minnesota, were both shot and killed in shocking videos posted online this week, which has stoked ongoing protests over police killings of people of color.

Protesters marched in other major cities.

However, the Saudi defence ministry said its spokesman would present evidence from the site of the weekend attacks that halved Saudi oil production, sending global energy markets into a tailspin.
