I only saw smoke bomb flung at a camera man, some flares with police marching towards what looked like a calm gathering. I think we need more pictures and videos before we start using adjectives like “violent” etc.. Not what I expected from Reuters.

Rioters are the ones being violent. Were the police handcuffing protesters or rioters?

That is not a smokebomb. It is chlorine gas. Tear Gas.
