Police shooting of Black man sparks fresh protests in US

Fresh protests broke out on Tuesday night in Minneapolis despite a curfew implemented after a police officer fatally shot 20-year-old Black man Daunte Wright during a traffic stop in Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday. She allegedly appeared to confuse her handgun with her taser, fueling tensions in a US city already on edge because of the George Floyd murder trial.
