Protesters marched in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Monday, as the jury retired to deliberate in the trial of police officer Derek Chauvin, who was charged over the death of George Floyd.

Closing arguments began in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Monday.
The 45-year-old has been charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of Floyd.
The defence and prosecution both rested their cases last week.
Floyd died last May following an arrest during which Chauvin placed a knee on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds while Floyd pleaded, “I can’t breathe.”
Caught on video, those tragic final moments led to widespread protests and riots across the US against police brutality and racism.
Chauvin, along with three other police officers present during the fatal arrest, was fired from the Minneapolis Police Department the day after the death.
