Jeff Sessions 'Anglo American Heritage' Remark Sparks Race Row


US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been accused of racism after praising "the Anglo-American heritage" of US policing.

A prominent civil rights group and a US senator accused America's top prosecutor of "dog whistle" politics.

But a Justice Department spokesman said a Google search reveals it to be a common legal term.

Mr Sessions, a former Alabama senator, has previously rejected suggestions he harbours racist sentiments.

His remarks on Monday to the National Sheriffs' Association in Washington prompted a swift backlash.
