Several hundred people gathered outside the White House and in New York's Times Square in small rallies organized by liberal advocacy groups demanding the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

US. Attorney General William Barr, who received the confidential report last month at the close of Mueller's 22-month investigation, has said he intended to release a redacted version to Congress and the public by mid-April.But Barr did not meet a demand by Democrats in the US House of Representatives to provide the unredacted report to lawmakers by April 2, prompting the liberal advocacy group MoveOn to press ahead with the rallies.

The rallies were thinly attended, with about 250 people outside the White House and about 300 in New York's Times Square waving signs, singing and demanding the report, which is nearly 400 pages long excluding appendices.
