Tens of thousands of people have demonstrated, mainly peacefully, across the United States for an eighth night following the death of African-American George Floyd in police custody. One of the biggest protests, joined by Floyd’s relatives, took place in his hometown of Houston, Texas.
Many defied curfews in several cities, imposed after violence and looting in some districts on Monday night. In central Washington DC police fired tear gas late into the night.
The military were again on the streets of the capital and helicopters hovered above protesters marching towards the White House. The Floyd case has reignited deep-seated anger over police killings of black Americans and racism.
Demonstrators have taken to the streets – not only to express their outrage at the treatment of Mr Floyd – but to condemn police brutality against black Americans more widely.
