Added On June 1, 2020

 Protests continue spreading across the U.S. over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African American who died while in police custody.

U.S. media reported that as many as 25 cities across 16 U.S. states have imposed curfews, while at least eight states and Washington D.C. have called on the National Guard to help respond to protests and unrest.
The Washington,D.C. mayor announced on Sunday a citywide curfew amid rising tensions between protesters and police outside the White House.
In New York, another 300-plus protesters were arrested Saturday in the third day of the city's protests.
Local media reported that some businesses in downtown Manhattan were broken in and looted. Several police vehicles were burnt and dozens damaged.
The San Francisco mayor said on Sunday that the one-night curfew declared earlier will remain in effect until the state of local emergency is terminated or at her further direction.
The curfew was announced following chaos and looting in downtown areas. 
The California governor declared a state of emergency in Los Angeles County on Saturday night.
The governor also authorized assistance by the National Guard in coping with the unrest in downtown Los Angeles.
George Floyd, aged 46, died last Monday shortly after Derek Chauvin, a police officer, held him down with a knee on his neck though he repeatedly pleaded, "I can't breathe."
Chauvin was arrested and charged with three-degree murder and manslaughter.
