USA: George Floyd protests continue for second straight day in North Side Chicago

Large crowds marched across Chicago's North Side to protest police brutality and the killing of George Floyd on Tuesday. Protesters gathered outside Wrigley Field, and walked south chanting «Say his name!» and «Black lives matter!». A group sat down in Division Street for nearly an hour, before resuming their march. 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 earlier this week 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.
