Conservative groups alleging without evidence that U.S. President-elect Joe Biden stole the U.S. election gathered for protests across the country on Saturday, including one in Washington, D.C., that threatened to turn violent as darkness fell.

Organizers with Stop the Steal, linked to pro-Trump operative Roger Stone, and church groups urged supporters to participate in "Jericho Marches" and prayer rallies.

But in downtown Washington, tensions rose after dark as scores of pro-Trump Proud Boys protesters and Antifa counter-protesters faced off, separated by police in riot gear and on bicycles.
