USA: Wall built around Minneapolis police station amid George Floyd protests

A makeshift concrete wall has been built around the Minneapolis Police department's 1st Precinct station, after days of protest in the city sparked by the killing of George Floyd. The concrete block wall, as well as metal barriers in the street, could be seen outside the building's entrance on Saturday. Protests and demonstrations have taken place across the US in reaction to Floyd's death, with riots and looting also occurring in some areas, including Minneapolis. 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.
