Protests take place in several countries in Europe on Sunday following the death of 46-year-old George Floyd in the United States, who died after an agent pressed his knee to his neck for minutes on arrest.

For example, protests are taking place in Trafalgar Square in London, in various places in Germany and in Dublin.

Photos of demonstrators can be seen on Twitter. There are signs and banners with the texts 'Black lives matter' and 'I can't breathe.'

Protests against police brutality in the US are growing grim

Unrest in the US remains unabated

It is still troubled in many states in the US. Curfew has been instituted in several cities, including Los Angeles and Chicago. Despite this, Americans took to the streets en masse to demonstrate.

In the meantime, many skirmishes with police officers have arisen in American cities. For example, police vehicles were destroyed and fires were started.
