Large demonstrations took place in at least 30 cities in the United States after the death of a black man in police custody.
American cities in the United States have been ordered in the evening to try to stop the unrest caused by the death of George Floyd.
Peaceful protests later turned violent in many areas, with cars and buildings set on fire and police used tear gas and rubber bullets to riot.
President Donald Trump has called for “healing” over the death of 46-year-old George Floyd, but said he could not allow the crowds to dominate.
Derek Chauvin, a former police officer, is charged with the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The 44-year-old white man is due to appear in court on June 1.
In the videos, Derek Chauvin can be seen kneeling on George Floyd’s neck for a few minutes on May 25. George Floyd repeatedly says he can’t breathe.
Three other employees present at the time have since been fired.
The Floyd case has sparked US anger over the police killings of black Americans. He follows the high-profile cases of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Eric Garner in New York and others who drove the Black Lives Matter movement.
One of the cities hardest hit by the unrest is Los Angeles. California Gov. Gavin Newsum has declared a state of emergency in the city and activated the National Guard, a reserve military force that could be called upon by the US president or state governors to intervene in internal emergencies.
LA City is under 20:00 to 05:30. Numerous shops were looted, including the famous shopping malls, Melrose and Fairfax, while footage from the top showed fires burning. Earlier, police fired rubber bullets and beat protesters with batons. Hundreds of arrests have been made.
Mayor Eric Garsetti said it was “the worst moment I’ve experienced” since the 1992 riots caused by the police acquittal for beating Rodney King.

In New York, a video shows a police car crashing into a crowd of protesters. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the situation did not start with the officers, but Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes said his comments were unacceptable and he should not make excuses for the officers.
Chicago Mayor Laurie Lightfoot imposed a curfew from 9pm to 6am until further notice, saying she was “disgusted” by the violence.
In Atlanta, protesters remained on the streets after curfew, damaging property and vehicles. Dozens of arrests have been made.
George Floyd died in a city that had seen less violence. About 700 National Guard officers are helping the Minneapolis police, and they have acted quickly to impose the curfew imposed there. The star tribune said the action had so far directed the unrest of the previous evening.
For the second day in a row, a large crowd of protesters mocked National Guard officers in front of the White House in Washington. If they had broken the fence, President Trump said they would be “greeted with the meanest dogs and the most sinister weapons I have ever seen.”
In Philadelphia under curfew, 13 police officers were injured and at least 35 arrests were made when shops were looted, police cars were set on fire and buildings were disfigured.
San Francisco was the last to impose an evening time announced by the mayor of London Bridge for 20:00 local time on Sunday, after robberies and violence.
Indianapolis was one of the cities where peaceful protests during the day turned violent later. At least one shooting occurred, but police said no officers dropped weapons.
Overnight curfews were also announced in Philadelphia, Miami, Portland and Louisville, among other cities, although many were simply ignored.
