James O'Brien hears the latest about the violent clashes between police and anti-racism protesters in the US after the death of unarmed black man George Floyd while in police custody.

Hundreds have been arrested at anti-racism protests as US states impose curfews and call in National Guard troops following a further night of violent clashes across the country.

Police and protesters clashed in cities across America in the wake of the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while he was being arrested by Minneapolis police.

A video has exposed officer Derek Chauvin kneeling on Mr Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes despite pleas from Mr Floyd that he could not breathe - the officer has been charged with murder and manslaughter.

LBC's Washington reporter Simon Marks told James that nobody knows what will happen next and President Donald Trump's tweets about the protests were "attacks on the press."
