Eric Garner death: Second night of protests in US cities

Protests have been held for a second night over the death of a black man held in an apparent chokehold by a white New York police officer.

Thousands of people took to the streets in US cities, disrupting traffic and holding sit-ins.

In New York, protestors carried fake coffins across the Brooklyn Bridge, while in Washington demonstrators lay in the street and chanted: "No justice, no peace! Prosecute the police!"
