In Minnesota, a police officer who arrested an unarmed black man and pressed his neck to his knees to kill him was charged with murder.

Prosecutors in Minnesota say they arrested former police officer Derek Shavin, a former Minneapolis police officer, and handed him to trial for third-class murder and accidental murder.

Prosecutor Derek Shawbin is accused of using counterfeit money on Thursday (local time), arresting a black man, 46-year-old George Floyd, who is accused of pressing his neck to his knees and hiding him.

According to the prosecution's indictment, Shobin pressed Floyd's neck to his knees for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, and after Floyd lost consciousness, he did not lift his knees from the neck for 2 minutes and 53 seconds.

All four police officers who had been dispatched to the scene at the time, including Shovin, have been dismissed.

Protests against the incident have spread throughout the United States, and protests also took place in Washington, DC, the capital, and the White House was put in blockade.

On the afternoon of the 29th, when hundreds of demonstrators tried to enter the White House with a protest rally, the White House Secret Service controlled the entrance to the White House by spraying tear gas.
