International Desk (Channel TT): Four policemen from the US state of Minnesota have been charged with inhumane murder of an unarmed black youth.The police officers were charged and then fired on Friday in connection with the killings, which caused a stir across the United States.

A white police officer from Minnesota in the United States strangled and killed a young black man named George Floyd on Monday after he was arrested on fraud charges. Three more policemen were involved.

After a video of the incident spread on social media, intense protests and movements spread across the United States, including Minnesota.

Derek Chaovin, the police officer who killed Floyd by kneeling, has been charged with "third-degree murder." But protests continue across the United States.

Meanwhile, state Governor Tim Wallace has imposed a temporary curfew in Minnesota, the epicenter of the protests. Anyone found on the streets or in public after 8pm during the curfew will face jail time and a ড 1,000 fine.

However, the protesters continued to break the curfew in the streets. In addition to Minnesota, there are protests in New York, Houston, Atlanta, Detroit, Las Vegas, San Jose and Memphis.

The White House, the country's presidential palace, was not spared the protests. The White House has been locked down for security reasons in the wake of the protests.
