    African American man George Floyd died on 25 May in police custody in Minneapolis after a police officer pressed his knee onto Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes while Floyd was handcuffed on his stomach, repeatedly saying he could not breathe.

    Live from Lafayette Park outside the White House in Washington DC as people gather for a protest, honouring George Floyd.

    New anti-riot fences have been installed around the White House to extend the perimeter of the previous one, put in place on Tuesday, to keep protesters further away from the White House grounds.
