Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called for the Indian Army to be called in on Wednesday as the capital's worst religious violence in decades entered a third day.

What's happening: The BBC reports at least 20 people have been killed and 189 others wounded since Sunday in the clashes between Hindu and Muslim groups over a new citizenship law.

  • Some Muslims abandoned their homes after they were targeted by looters, per the Guardian.

The big picture: The clashes coincided with President Trump's two-day visit to India. Muslims in northeast Delhi had staged a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act, which allows religious minorities but excludes Muslims from nearby countries to become citizens if they can show they were persecuted for their religion.

  • Trump told reporters before departing Tuesday that he had "heard about the violence but had not discussed it" with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi because he wanted to leave the issue with Indian authorities, according to AP.

Of note: Modi's Hindu nationalist government has repeatedly blocked internet access in parts of the country that are home to protests against the citizenship law.

Why it matters: The COVID Tracking Project warns of a "double-weekend pattern" on Thanksgiving — where the usual weekend backlog of data is tacked on to a holiday.

President Trump on Wednesday pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in the Mueller investigation to lying to FBI agents about his conversations with a former Russian ambassador.

Why it matters: It is the first of multiple pardons expected in the coming weeks, as Axios scooped Tuesday night.
