★George Floyd death: Washington DC hit by violent protests
1 June 2020
Washington DC has seen some of the worst violence overnight, as protests continued in the US capital and cities around the country over the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of police in the state on Minnesota.
George Floyd, 46, died in police custody shortly after a white officer was seen kneeling on his neck to pin him down.
This time demonstrators lit fires, setting up burning barricades
American flags were tossed in the bonfires
A fire was set in the basement of St John's Episcopal Church - a historic building close the White House. Every sitting US president has attended the church at least once since it was built in 1816.
Police used flash grenades to disperse crowds
Riot police managed to keep protesters at bay, protecting the White House. However, media reports say that on Friday President Donald Trump had to spend nearly an hour in an underground bunker used only in emergencies
