US violence: Nearly 1,400 people in 17 US cities as protests continue over the death of George Floyd were arrested by the police.
Floyd died on Monday in Minnesota after a police officer put his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. The officer was charged with third-degree murder and was arrested on Friday.

An Associated Press tally of arrests found at least 1,383 people have been arrested since Thursday. The actual number is likely to be higher as protests continue Saturday night
