The court case for George Floyd has started in the United States.

The trial is against policeman Derek Chauvin. He was the former police officer who held his knee on Floyd’s neck for around 9minutes until he died.

Chauvin has been charged with murdering George Floyd.

The public responded to Floyd’s death with mass protests across the US in what became the largest US civil rights movement since the 1960s.

Floyd’s death brought renewed attention to the Black Lives Matter movement. Protesters called for a change in policing.
