Around 100 people demonstrated outside the US embassy in Dublin today, demanding justice for George Floyd. A peaceful protest was also held outside the official residence of the US ambassador, Deerfield, in the Phoenix Park.

The 46-year-old African-American man stopped breathing after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was filmed kneeling on his neck. He has since been charged with third degree murder.

In the video, Mr Floyd can be heard telling police officers, "I can't breathe."

The incident has sparked violent protests across the US, with curfews overnight in dozens of cities amid growing unrest.
