George Floyd funeral in Houston

George Floyd’s funeral is to be held in Houston on Tuesday, just over two weeks after his death in police custody in Minneapolis sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the United States and throughout the world, and led to the dismissal and arrest of four officers.

Floyd died on 25 May after police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes, despite the 46-year-old’s pleas that he could not breathe.

Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter, and appeared in court for the first time on Monday. Three other officers, J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao, have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter.
