There's been a second night of unrest on the streets of Minneapolis, where riot police confronted crowds of protesters angered by the fatal shooting of Daunte Wright.

Black Lives Matter protests have sprung up in New York and Washington DC in solidarity.

Wright was killed after police attempted to arrest him for an exisiting warrant at a routine traffic stop on Sunday night.

Local police has since released officer Kim Porter's body-cam footage claiming she intended to use a Taser on Wright but pulled her gun instead.
