George Floyd, the 46-year-old African American man, died while in police custody in Minneapolis, which has sparked protests in the United States and spread across the world. Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd, has been arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Three other officers involved in the arrest have not been charged.
