A US jury has found guilty a former police officer, Derek Chauvin of murder over the death of African-American George Floyd.
Derek Chauvin, 45, was filmed kneeling on Mr Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes during an arrest last May on the street of Minneapolis.
The widely watched footage sparked worldwide protests against racism and excessive use of force by police.
Chauvin was found guilty on three charges: second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.
His bail was immediately revoked and he was placed in custody. Sentencing is likely to happen in two months, and Chauvin could spend decades in jail.
In Minnesota, second-degree murder carries a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison. Third-degree murder is punishable by up to 25 years in prison. Second-degree manslaughter is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Chauvin is expected to appeal against the verdict.
