About four thousand people detained during riots in the USA
About 4 thousand people were detained in the United States during the riots after the death of African-American George Floyd, CNN reported citing its own calculations.
A wave of protests and riots swept through the cities of the United States after the death of African-American George Floyd at the hands of the police. Videos appeared on the Internet that showed that the police handcuffed Floyd, knocked him down and fell on him three, one of them stepping on his neck with his knee. Floyd on the video several times says that he can’t breathe, then calms down. He died in intensive care.
After the riots started, four policemen were fired, and one of them was accused of negligence. In Washington, from 23:00 local time (6:00 Moscow time on Monday), a curfew was announced.
