Thousands of people are chanting “black lives matter” in front of the U.S. Embassy in Berlin, NBC is reporting.
Protests across the United States continue over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis by a police officer. The riots at times are resulting in looting. The National Guard was called to help in Minnesota and Georgia.
Floyd died after a white officer in Minneapolis choked him with his knee for several minutes. That officer, Derek Chauvin, was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter earlier on Friday.
On Thursday D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham called the police officers’ actions “nothing short of murder.”
