Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Protests in Minneapolis after killing of Black man by police” – below is their description.

In the United States, a new wave of Black Lives Matter protests are beginning around the country at the killing of a young black man by police.

The Minnesota police chief says the officer who fired the shot which killed Daunte Wright had intended to fire a Taser, not a handgun, calling it an “accidental discharge”.

The 20-year-old was killed during a traffic stop, just a few miles from the Minneapolis courtroom where former police officer Derek Chauvin is on trial for the murder of George Floyd.

Protests led to clashes last night in an area where tensions were already running high, as the trial enters its eleventh day.
