Protesters in Minneapolis have clashed with the police, demanding answers after an African American man was killed by officers on Monday.

A video of the incident shows George Floyd being held down by a police officer with a knee to his neck for several minutes, as he repeatedly told officers that he could not breathe.

The four officers involved with the death have been fired, but hundreds of protesters took to the streets on Tuesday night, saying they now need to face charges.
