Hundreds of protesters gathered in San Francisco on Friday, protesting inhumane conditions in migrant detention centres.

Protesters held up placards and signs and chanted slogans such as "abolish ICE."

Thousands of people took part in protests across the US, as demonstrators call for closure of migrant detention centres.

The treatment of migrants in the detention centres - particularly child migrants - has come under fire in recent months, with reports emerging of squalid conditions and cruelty from staff. Members of Congress such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez testified to the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Thursday that detainees face abuse and inhumane conditions.
