Cruz fails to endorse Trump in convention speech, sparking jeers

A number of people were arrested on Wednesday after burning US flags outside Ohio's Cleveland Arena where the Republican convention is being held. Several hours later, tens of thousands of people at the convention booed and heckled Sen. Ted Cruz, who did not endorse the party's presidential candidate Donald Trump in his speech. A large group of policemen and members of the secret service escorted Cruz's wife out of the convention hall out of concern for her security. Trump's running mate Mike Pence, who spoke before Cruz, announced that he accepted the party's nomination for vice president.
