The African Union has taken a swipe at the United States in reaction to incident in which a black man was killed by Police caught on video – prompting widespread anger across America.

On Monday, a white officer with the Minneapolis Police Department, State of Minnesota, was recorded in a now viral video placing a knee on the neck of George Floyd. He can be heard pleading “I can’t breathe”. Floyd was later pronounced dead by investigators.

Four officers were fired, but that incident has sparked riots and angry protests across the city, and other regions of the states. Buildings have been set ablaze and heavily armed security agencies are patrolling and firing rounds to stop the rioting.

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat, in a statement says he strongly condemns the murder of George Floyd, and wishes to extend his deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.

Through AU spokesperson Ebba Kalondo, the statement reads: “Recalling the historic Organisation of Africa Unity (OAU) Resolution on Racial Discrimination in the United States of America made by African Heads of State and Government, at the OAU’s First Assembly Meeting held in Cairo, Egypt from 17 to 24 July 1964, the Chairperson of the African Union Commission firmly reaffirms and reiterates the African Union’s rejection of the continuing discriminatory practices against Black citizens of the United States of America.”

The AU chief further urges the authorities in the United States of America to intensify their efforts to ensure the total elimination of all forms of discrimination based on race or ethnic origin.

Meanwhile, as the rioting took place, CNN crew reporting on the violence was arrested live on TV as they reported early today morning. The Governor of Minnesota has since apologized and the crew was released sometime after.

In a related development, US President Donald Trump issued a strongly worded threat via Twitter that if the “THUGS” dont stop the looting, then the shooting would start.

Twitter flagged the Tweet as promoting violence, the second such incident by the social media platform. The actions have infuriated the President.

Minneapolis residents awoke Thursday to assess the damage after rioters ignited fires and looted stores all over the city, as peaceful protests turned increasingly violent in the aftermath the death of George Floyd during an arrest.
