A United States' jury has found a former police officer guilty of murder over the death of African-American George Floyd on a Minneapolis street last year.
Derek Chauvin (45), was filmed kneeling on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes during his arrest last May.
The widely watched footage sparked worldwide protests against racism and excessive use of force by police.
Chauvin was found guilty on three charges, second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter.
His bail was immediately revoked and he was placed in custody. His sentencing will happen in two months. He is expected to appeal against the verdict.
