Starbucks apologises as outrage grows at arrest of two black men while they waited for friend

Starbucks has apologised to two black men who were arrested while waiting for a friend at one of its branches in Philadelphia.

Cellphone footage shows the pair being placed in handcuffs and led quietly from the store while perplexed onlookers can be heard saying they had done nothing wrong.

An apology issued at the weekend was not enough to prevent demonstrators gathering to highlight Thursday incident and what they said was yet another example of how black people are still treated as second-class citizens in America.
