World outrage grows at Floyd’s death; EU ‘shocked, appalled’

BRUSSELS (AP) — World outrage at George Floyd’s death in the U.S. is growing as the European Union’s top diplomat says the bloc was “shocked and appalled” by it and thousands marched in Australia’s largest city. In France, protests were planned for the evening in Paris and across the country after calls from the family of a French black man who died shortly after he was arrested by police in 2016. A protest was also planned in The Hague, Netherlands. Floyd died last week after he was pinned to the pavement by a white police officer in Minneapolis who put his knee on the handcuffed black man’s neck until he stopped breathing.
