The authorities have extended the curfew in New York, the mayor’s spokeswoman noted.
"NEW: tomorrow, Tuesday 6/2, NYC will have a curfew in place beginning at 8pm (it will lift at 5am Wednesday 6/3)" Freddi Goldstein tweeted.
The protests in the US came following a video showing African American Floyd's arrest. Floyd was suspected of shopping with fake money at a store.
He was handcuffed and thrown to the ground, after which a police officer pressed him on the asphalt with his knee. Floyd screamed that he couldn’t breathe, but the police officers didn’t pay attention to him. The African American was hospitalized, but doctors failed to save his life.
