U.N. Chief Calls On Political Leaders And Law Enforcement To Listen To Protestors And Show Restraint

Much of the United States has erupted into protests over racial inequality and police brutality.

United Nations chief Antonio Guterres has called on U.S. leaders and authorities to listen to protestors and show restraint.

According to Reuters, Guterres has also urged protestors to do so peacefully.

The wave of U.S. protests was ignited by the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police.
