Protesters Throw Molotov Cocktails At Athens George Floyd Rally
Athens, June 3 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 4th Jun, 2020 ) :Protesters threw Molotov cocktails at Greek riot police who responded with tear gas at a rally in Athens on Wednesday against racism and police violence galvanised by roiling demonstrations across the US.
The police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, has not only sparked once-in-a-generation protests in the US, but also solidarity demonstrations around the world, including Stockholm and Helsinki on Wednesday.
Some of the group of protesters also set fire to rubbish bins.
Several thousand protesters also gathered in Stockholm, many wearing face masks, however the police gradually broke up the rally due to a ban on gatherings of more than 50 people in Sweden due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The white Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on George Floyd's neck before he died on May 25 will be charged with second-degree murder, court documents revealed Wednesday, while his three colleagues will also face charges.
