George Floyd: British Government condemns murder of African-American by US police

The United Kingdom has condemned the killing of black American, George Floyd by police in the United States.

British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, made the condemnation on Wednesday but, however, did not say whether he had spoken about the issue with the US President Donald Trump.

In his first public comment on the crisis rocking the US, Johnson told the UK parliament on Wednesday “I think what happened in the United States was appalling, inexcusable.

“We all saw it on our screens and I perfectly understand people’s right to protest what took place,” he added.

“Obviously I also believe that protests should take place in a lawful and reasonable way.”

George Floyd, an unarmed African-American, died last week after a police officer in the US city Minneapolis knelt on his neck.

The incident was captured on video by a witness who circulated it online, thus triggering a nationwide protest.
