The jury has found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of the murder and manslaughter of George Floyd.
The verdict, read out on Tuesday afternoon, was reached by a jury after less than a day of deliberations.
Mr Floyd died on May 25 last year after Chauvin, a 45-year-old white officer, was seen on video kneeling on the 46-year-old black man’s neck for about nine-and-a-half minutes.
The footage drew outrage across the US and triggered worldwide protests and violence.
