Thousands of people have been arrested in several US cities, including Los Angeles and New York.
Protests against racism erupted last week in Minnesota after George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, died in police custody.
After violent protests erupted in several US states, Donald Trump described the protesting citizens as local terrorists and accused them of looting.
US President Donald Trump has expressed outrage at religious leaders and protesters visiting a historic church near the White House.
The protesters demanded that a murder case be registered against the four police officers involved in George Floyd’s killing.
So far, only one white police officer, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with third-degree murder.
It was Derek Chauvin who knelt down on George Floyd’s neck with full force for 9 minutes, killing the black man.
Earlier, the US administration imposed night curfews in Washington, Los Angeles and Houston, but protesters rejected the curfew.
The head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State Pope Francis also broke his silence and condemned the death of George Floyd.
He said “brothers and sisters in the United States,” saying he has “witnessed with great concern the disturbing social unrest in your nation in these past days.”
