In Minneapolis, appeals for peace were made Monday from the brother of George Floyd, a black man who died as a white police officer pinned his neck down a week ago. Such calls also have been also been made by financial services firms based in the region.
The killing have sparked several nights of protests that have turned violent in Minneapolis and other cities across the U.S.
Appearing at the intersection in south Minneapolis where his brother’s life ended, Terrence Floyd said: “In every case of police brutality the same thing has been happening. You have protests, you destroy stuff … so they want us to destroy ourselves. Let’s do this another way,” according to The Associated Press.
