USA: Several arrested as rubber bullets fly near Minneapolis I-35W motorway

Several arrests have been made during a protest over George Floyd's death near the I-35W motorway on Sunday. The I-35W motorway was the scene of one of the key protests on Friday night, and protesters have been drawn to attempting to get back on it to voicing their anger over police brutality. Footage shows riot police and the National Guard conducting arrests with people running away from audible shots. A photographer could be seen being arrested, but it was not clear if he was press. According to numerous reports, journalists and photographers covering the protests have been hit with rubber bullets and tear gas with several press representatives being arrested as well. 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.
