Police drive into crowd as violence escalates in US over George Floyd's death

| 31.05,20. 06:28 PM |

More than 25 cities across the US are under curfew now that night has well and truly fallen in the northern hemisphere, meaning demonstrations have quietened down for the time being.
It has been an historic day, with the full National Guard activated for the first time since World War II in Minnesota, the state where African-American man George Floyd died in police custody on Monday.
Governors in several other states also called in National Guard troops as protests grew from New York to Tulsa to Los Angeles, where police fired rubber bullets to scatter crowds and buildings and vehicles burned.
