World alarmed by violence in US; thousands march in London

LONDON (AP) — Nations around the world have watched in horror at the civil unrest in the United States following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white police officer pressed his knee on his neck until he stopped breathing.

Burning cars and American riot police featured on newspaper front pages Sunday around the globe. The story bumped news of the COVID-19 pandemic to second-tier status. Thousands marched in London.
