A Donald Trump rally in Chicago was postponed on Friday, amid a bloody clash between supporters and demonstrators.

The announcement, which came amid large protests both inside and outside the event at the University of Illinois, comes amid heightened concerns about violence at the GOP front-runner's rallies and four days before Illinois holds its Republican primary, foreign media reports.

Witnesses say that hundreds of demonstrators packed the area and launched a protest before Trump was to appear.

"Mr. Trump just arrived in Chicago, and after meeting with law enforcement, has determined that for the safety of all of the tens of thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena, tonight's rally will be postponed to another date," the Trump campaign said in a statement. "Thank you very much for your attendance and please go in peace."
