The fifth night of protests following the killing of George Floyd by police is underway, with a curfew of 8 p.m. once again in force.

The National Guard has increased its numbers amid concern that the arsons that caused so much destruction on Thursday and Friday nights will resume. 

Department of Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington says police have been finding caches of incendiaries dotted around the Twin Cities, including near locations of previous fires.
