A nighttime curfew will be imposed across the United States’ capital Washington on Sunday evening, the mayor of the District of Columbia said after protestors again gathered near the White House.

Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a statement that the curfew would last from 11:00 pm until 6:00 am on Monday, adding she had mobilized the National Guard to support the police after nationwide protests.

The Minneapolis officer who was seen on video kneeling on the neck of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who died in custody after pleading that he could not breathe, was arrested on Friday.

Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington said state investigators arrested Derek Chauvin.
