At least one hundred people have gathered at the front of the Idaho Capitol in the US to burn masks in a protest against measures taken to limit infections and deaths caused by the coronavirus pandemic, ABC News reports.
Some groups said mask mandates are a restriction of their freedoms. Health experts say they help slow the spread of the disease.
Videos posted on social media showed adults encouraging children to toss masks into a fire.
In a series of videos, people of all ages are seen walking up to a blue metal drum in which a fire is burning and throwing disposable masks inside.
Fellow protesters can be heard laughing and cheering after the masks are set alight.
