Protesters hold up signs during a rally against US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Burlingame, California on April 29, 2016Hundreds of demonstrators jostled with police in riot gear outside a California hotel where Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump gave a speech, forcing the candidate to duck into a back entrance. At one point, several dozen protesters broke through barricades and attempted to storm the hotel where the California Republican Party Convention was taking place on Friday, but police, some wielding batons, were able to push them back. The demonstrators waved banners that read "No hate, no racism, no Trump," "We need a uniter, not a divider" and "Trump is the modern day Hitler." Several carried Mexican flags.

An Iranian woman casts her ballot to vote in the second round of parliamentary elections in Tehran, on April 29, 2016Reformist and moderate Iranian politicians allied with President Hassan Rouhani won second round parliamentary elections, unofficial results said Saturday, opening the door to them controlling the legislature. It would also be an implicit public vote of confidence for Rouhani, who won a landslide election victory in 2013 and went on to clinch a historic deal with world powers over Tehran's nuclear programme that lifted sanctions. Almost a quarter of parliament's seats were at stake in run-offs Friday in what was a crucial showdown between reformists and conservatives seeking to influence the country's future.
