A group of protesters gathered in front of the White House at night over the killing of an unarmed African-American man George Floyd at the hands of officers in Minneapolis has clashed with the Secret Service, CNN reported.
For over five hours at night, protestors confronted Secret Service officers at barriers near White House. At times, the crowd removed the metal barriers and began pushing up against the Secret Service officers. The protestors pushed hard enough that some officers have sustained minor injuries.
For almost the entire night, protesters chanted words in support of the deceased George Floyd and loudly expressed antipathy towards US President Donald Trump.
