America ablaze as George Floyd protests spread across the country

Washington Correspondent

A teenager has been killed and dozens of protesters have been arrested.

American cities have been set ablaze by rioting and looting sparked by the death of an unarmed black man whilst in police custody.

George Floyd’s encounter with police in Minneapolis was captured on camera and his pleas of ‘I can’t breathe’ have become the rallying cry for those who’ve taken to the streets.

Police brutality against black people is America’s deepest faultline.
