Peaceful protesters took to the streets around the US today to demand justice for George Floyd and other black Americans who have recently died following police violence.
Protesters cheered Wednesday by news that four Minneapolis officers are now charged in Floyd's death.
Earlier in the day, three former Minneapolis police officers on the scene when Floyd was killed were charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison announced today.
Ellison said he's upgrading the charge against Derek Chauvin, the officer who had his knee pressed into Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes, from third- to second-degree murder.
Here's what the protests look like around the US:
