Warning: some viewers may find the images in this report distressing.

Disturbing footage has emerged showing a police officer in Minneapolis kneeling on an African American man’s neck as he yells ‘I cannot breathe’. The man later died. It comes shortly after the US Department of Justice announced they were investigating another shocking incident of an African American who was killed earlier this year in Georgia by two white men. The attack on Ahmahd Arbery was also captured on video and sparked outcry across the United States.
