USA: Protesters flood Times Square to demand justice for George Floyd

New York City locals decrying the death of African-American George Floyd took to the streets at Time Square on Monday. Footage shows protesters chanting slogans and cheering, with many holding placards and others wearing face masks as a safety precaution amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. 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.
