    Protests against racial discrimination and police brutality have been held globally, sparked by the murder of a black former convict, George Floyd, by a policeman in Minnesota, US.

    Sputnik is live from London, UK where Black Lives Matter protests are in full swing for the second day in a row. Similar protests have also been held in other UK cities.

    Demonstrations have been staged across the UK every weekend for the past four weeks, some of which were marked by riots. However, Saturday's rallies were largely peaceful. A stabbing incident in Reading, where a BLM protest was held, was not related to the movement, according to the police.
