    Workers began removing artwork and barricades from George Floyd Square, the memorial space constructed at the south Minneapolis intersection where George Floyd was murdered by a white police officer.

    Barricades were being taken down to allow the intersection to be reopened to traffic, the city confirmed, but there were small demonstrations by community activists and local residents that opposed the reopening of the intersection at Chicago Avenue and 38th Street.
