George Floyd death: Trump threatens to send in army to end unrest.. Video

President Donald Trump has threatened to send in the military to quell growing civil unrest in the US over the death of a black man in police custody

He said if cities and states failed to control the protests and « defend their residents » he would deploy the army and quickly solve the problem for them

Protests over the death of George Floyd have escalated over the past week

On Tuesday the Las Vegas sheriff said an officer died in a shooting after police attempted to disperse a crowd

Dozens of people have been injured as authorities used tear gas and force to disperse protests which have swept more than 75 cities

Four officers meanwhile were shot and injured on Monday night during unrest in St Louis, Missouri

The protests began after a video showed Mr Floyd, 46, being arrested in Minneapolis on 25 May and a white police officer continuing to kneel on his neck even after he pleaded that he could not breathe

The officer, Derek Chauvin, has been charged with third-degree murder and will appear in court next week. Three other police officers have been fired

The Floyd case has reignited deep-seated anger over police killings of black Americans and racism. It follows the high-profile cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; Eric Garner in New York; and others that have driven the Black Lives Matter movement

For many, the outrage also reflects years of frustration over socio-economic inequality and discrimination, not least in Minneapolis itself
