Washington, Sept 23: A curfew was imposed in the US city of Charlotte as protests against the police continued after a black man was shot dead. As hundreds of demonstrators filled the streets of Charlotte on Thursday night to express their anger over Tuesday’s incident, Mayor Jennifer Roberts signed an order for a curfew, officials said, ABC news reported. The curfew is part of a proclamation of a state of emergency, that explains such a measure is necessary “in order to more effectively protect the lives and property of the people.”

Chanting “No Justice, No Peace” and “Don’t Shoot, Hands Up,” protesters began peacefully marching down streets — surrounded by rifle-carrying tiol Guard officers — carrying signs that read “End Police Terror,” “Black Lives Matter,” “I Hope I Don’t Killed For Being Black” and “Black Power.” (IANS)
