Protests and disturbances began in cities across the US after African American George Floyd was murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis. A video was posted online, showing how three police officers handcuffed Floyd, threw him to the ground and apprehended him, and one of them pressed his knee on the man’s neck. Floyd said he couldn’t breathe several times, stopped talking and died at the reanimation unit. Four policemen have been fired since the disturbances began, and one of them is charged with third-degree murder.
