Protesters across the US have continued to vent their fury at the death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers in Minneapolis.
In major cities like New York and Washington DC, the protests have been largely peaceful, though demonstrators continued to march late into the night and defied city-wide curfews.
In other key developments:
- The state of Minnesota filed a civil rights charge against their police department over George Floyd's death. Governor Tim Walz told reporters that the probe will be designed to root out "systemic racism that is generations deep"
- Elsewhere, crowds gathered in Floyd's hometown of Houston, Texas, for a peaceful march alongside his family
- And in Washington DC, some 1,600 active soldiers have been flown in to bases around the city. A Pentagon spokesman said the move was a "prudent planning measure" and the troops were on “heightened alert status”
