Democrats arrested at abortion rights protest

At least 17 Democratic members of the US Congress have been arrested at an abortion rights protest in Washington DC.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were among those detained near the Supreme Court.

They were seen chanting “hands off our bodies” and blocking a street before being led away by police.

The protest follows a Supreme Court ruling which ended the nationwide right to abortion.
