US police officer charged with murder of black man which sparked days of unrest – BBC News

A sacked police officer has been charged with murder, for his role in the death of an unarmed black man in the American city of Minneapolis, that’s sparked days of unrest.

A police station was set on fire overnight, and officers have been firing tear gas and rubber bullets. Donald Trump tweeted that “thugs” were dishonouring George Floyd’s memory.

But Twitter accused him of “glorifying violence” with a post that said: “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
