In the United Kingdom, thousands of protesters gathered outside the US Embassy in London on Sunday to condemn police brutality after the killing of Floyd.

Earlier, British protesters briefly clashed with mounted police on Saturday after thousands gathered in central London, Reuters said.

Cressida Dick, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, said 27 officers had been injured in "shocking and completely unacceptable" assaults during anti-racism protests in central London, including 14 on Saturday.

Xinhua and agencies contributed to this story.
