Protesters trapped on Manhattan Bridge by police in New York City

Protesters were blocked on Manhattan Bridge in New York City by police as they defied an 8pm city-wide curfew.

More than 200 people were arrested in NYC during another night of demonstrations over the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd.

But most protests passed peacefully. While there were scattered reports of looting in New York City, the country appeared calmer by late Tuesday than it did a day earlier, when violence swept through multiple cities.
