Minneapolis Demonstration: Looting and Burning Cars – News Abroad

-

On Sunday evening, a truck crashed into a crowd in the US metropolis of Minneapolis, Minnesota, which demonstrated for the death of George Floyd.

The vehicle drove around 6 p.m. (local time) on a highway that was officially closed due to the protests. People could dodge the vehicle that was honking through the crowd. According to the police, no one was injured.

Video recordings show that people tried to pull the driver out of the truck. He was arrested by the police and taken to a hospital.

Why the man drove into the crowd and how he got on the blocked highway is unclear.

Protests in many US cities

For the sixth consecutive night, several US metropolises led to protests, some of which turned into violence. The CNN broadcaster reported that thousands of people took to the streets in New York. Burning vehicles in Boston and looting in Philadelphia were seen on television pictures.

In the US capital Washington, demonstrators again marched outside the White House on Sunday evening (local time). There were clashes with the police. Demonstrators chanted “No peace without justice,” as a dpa reporter reported. CNN reported that on Friday, US President Donald Trump (73) was brought into a bunker for just under an hour because of the protests outside the White House.

According to CNN, at least 40 cities imposed night curfews, including Washington. A total of ten million people were affected by the measures. Arizona state governor Doug Ducey even issued a night curfew for the entire week through June 8.

Burning cars and shops

At least 15 of the 50 U.S. states and Washington’s capital district mobilized the National Guard, CNN reported. The National Guard is part of the U.S. Armed Forces Reserve and can be called for help in exceptional situations in states.

There have been violent protests in Minneapolis and numerous other cities in the past few nights – from New York on the east coast to Los Angeles on the west coast. Burning cars and shops could be seen on television pictures in many places. The Minnesota National Guard announced on Sunday that more than 5,000 out of a total of 10,000 soldiers were already deployed. The other soldiers were ready.
