The mayor of Chicago has appealed for calm after the release of footage showing an unarmed boy aged 13 being shot dead by a policeman last month.

The video shows Adam Toledo with his hands up and with no weapon. The police film shows a handgun near the spot where he fell.

The teenager's death comes at a time of high tension in the US about police killings.
