Minneapolis under curfew, state of emergency after Black homicide suspect's death
The city has been the center of protests following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African-American man, who died in May after a police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes. Floyd's death and further violence against Black people have led to broader anti-racism protests and demonstrations against police brutality in cities across the United States. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey imposed a curfew following what he described as mass looting of businesses, destruction of property and unrest.
