An African-American resident of Minneapolis, 46-year-old George Floyd, died on 25 May after being tackled and pinned to the ground by police responding to a call by a local grocery store, after Floyd allegedly tried to make a purchase with a counterfeit bill.

Sputnik presents its live broadcast of protests over police killing of George Floyd that have been continuing in Minneapolis for several days already.

The protests began after George Floyd was pronounced dead in hospital on Monday, moments after a police officer had knelt on his neck for more than seven minutes despite Floyd saying he could not breathe. 

The four officers who were involved in Floyd's arrest were fired the next day.  

US President Donald Trump said he has requested a federal investigation into the incident and pledged that "justice will be served."
