    Officials in Louisville, Kentucky have agreed to pay $12m (£9.3m) to the family of Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was killed in her home by police. Taylor was 26 when she was shot at least five times and killed on 13 March during a mistaken drugs raid. Her name has featured prominently in anti-racism protests in recent months. Lonita Baker, a lawyer for Taylor’s family, called the settlement just one “layer” in the effort to seek justice, and praised new police reforms. “Justice for Breonna is multi-layered,” said Ms Baker at a press conference on Tuesday alongside Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. She called the agreement “tremendous, but only a portion” of what the family hopes for, including the arrest of the officers involved in her death. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource
