A protester standing on barriers near a fence is shot with pepper balls by federal law enforcement officers during a demonstration against police violence and racial inequality in Portland, Oregon, July 29, 2020. Oregon\u0027s governor said federal tactical police had agreed to withdraw from Portland, though U.S. officials said agents would stay until conditions improved after weeks of clashes with protesters. Their presence drew national attention after camouflage-clad agents were videoed snatching a protester off the street and whisking him away in an unmarked minivan. Democrats and civil rights groups said agents were acting as an unconstitutional, occupying force and committing civil rights violations. REUTERS/Caitlin Ochs

Mexican ballet dancer Abigail Miranda, member of the classic dance company "Ballet de Monterrey", takes part in an online training class as her daughter touches her legs at their house in Monterrey, Mexico.
