The funeral for George Floyd has been held in the US city of Houston.

Floyd is the African American whose death has roused worldwide protests against racism.

American flags lined the streets outside the church. Flowers and bouquets were placed around a photograph of Floyd.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential candidate, spoke via a video recording.

After the service, a funeral procession travelled about 24km to Houston Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Pearland, Texas.

His body was to travel in a horse-drawn carriage for burial alongside his mother.
