Protests over George Floyd’s death continued in Washington, DC on Tuesday evening and in the early hours of Wednesday, with people peacefully marching on the streets near the White House.

Protesters with ‘Black Lives Matter’ banners chanted ‘No peace, no justice.’ Heavy military vehicles could also be seen in the streets.

Protests and demonstrations have taken place across the world, having begun in the US in reaction to Floyd’s death, with riots and looting also occurring in some areas.

Floyd, a Houston native, died in Minneapolis on May 25 after a police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes as he was recorded saying, “I can’t breathe” and “Don’t kill me.”

Four officers involved in the incident have since been fired. The officer who knelt on Floyd was arrested and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter on Friday.
