    Protests Turn Violent Outside Trump Rally in NM

    In one of the presidential campaign year's more grisly spectacles, demonstrators at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades. Authorities labeled it a "riot."

    Police responded by firing pepper spray and smoke grenades into the crowd outside the Albuquerque Convention Center.

    During the rally, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was interrupted repeatedly by protesters, who shouted, held up banners and resisted removal by security officers.

    The banners included the messages "Trump is Fascist" and "We've heard enough."

    Meanwhile, Trump added to his list of victories Tuesday with a primary win in Washington state. He ran unopposed after emerging from a crowded field of candidates.
