Black man’s killing: Curfews ignored as US race protests rage


Protesters in different cities of the United States have defied curfews, as anger at the police killing of George Floyd spreads. The Trump administration has backed down on a threat to send in the military.

Dozens of cities across the US have seen further protests as outrage over the killing of George Floyd and anger over police brutality spreads across the nation.

Minneapolis, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Columbus and Los Angeles were among the cities to introduce curfews for residents on Saturday night.

Police confronted protesters who broke curfew in Minneapolis, with dozens arrested. At least 13 officers in Philadelphia were injured when peaceful demonstrations turned violent, and police in several cities used tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets in attempts to quell protests.

On Sunday, authorities in Minneapolis the body of an unidentified man near a burning vehicle. Police said the man’s body showed obvious signs of trauma, but it was unclear if the death was related to the protests. At least one person has been killed in the protests so far, after an unidentified suspect in a car opened fire on protesters in Detroit, killing a 19-year-old man.

At a protest in Tallahassee, Florida, a person drove a pickup truck through a crowd of protesters gathered at an intersection, hitting some of them. The driver was later arrested and no one was seriously injured, local officials said. The scene was repeated in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, where video footage recorded by onlookers showed a police squad car driving into a crowd of protesters, reports DW.
