USA: George Floyd protesters arrested in New York after curfew

George Floyd protesters were arrested on Tuesday evening after an 8 PM (00.00 GMT) curfew announced earlier by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Footage shows arrested protesters with their hands behind their backs, sitting on the ground with police and emergency service in place after the curfew went into effect. Protests and demonstrations have taken place across the world, having begun in the US in reaction to Floyd's death, with riots and looting also occurring in some areas. Floyd, a Houston native, died in Minneapolis on May 25 after a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he was recorded saying, «I can't breathe» and «Don't kill me.» Four officers involved in the incident have since been fired. The officer who knelt on Floyd was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday.
