Authorities have made 51 arrests for federal crimes related to rioting, Attorney General William Barr said Thursday, blaming the violence and destruction on antifa as well as agitators “of a variety of different political persuasions.”

Mr. Barr, who has deployed all federal law-enforcement agencies to help quell the unrest, also said the federal investigation into the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which sparked demonstrations nationwide, is continuing.
