While there have been violent clashes between some US police and demonstrators protesting against the killing of George Floyd, other officers have been showing signs of solidarity and reaching out.

Some police have taken a knee with protesters in a gesture of respect while others have marched alongside demonstrators calling for change or simply hugged them.

The killing of George Floyd, 46, on 25 May has sparked days of mass protests and unrest across the US. Mr Floyd died after he was pinned at the neck by a white Minneapolis police officer.
