In this month's poll, his approval rating dropped two points to 46% and his disapproval rating jumped 7 points to 53%.

Soho in New York City was ravaged by looters on Sunday night who smashed the windows of luxury stores like Gucci, Chanel and Bloomingdales to steal goods in a wild night of riots that saw more than 250 arrests, cops being injured and one man being shot.

Across New York City on Sunday night, more than 250 people were arrested. Six cops were injured, none seriously, and a man in his twenties was shot in the abdomen after an argument with a different group of young men.

Banana Island Lagos, Nigeria's Most Exclusive And Expensive Neighborhood In Africa

Banana Island Lagos, Nigeria's most exclusive Estate.
Banana Island is Nigeria’s most extravagant and expensive neighbourhood - on par with the Seventh Arrondissement in Paris,  La Jolla in San Diego, California and Tokyo's Shibuya or Roppongi neighbourhoods.

The exclusive playground of Nigeria’s obscenely wealthy, Banana Island is an artificial island built on reclaimed land in Ikoyi-Lagos. From an aerial view, the island is actually shaped like a banana, hence its name. Sitting on 1.6 million square meters, the sumptuous island is divided into about 535 plots ranging in size from 1,000 square meters and 3,000 square meters.

Banana Island is a place of unrivalled opulence and grandeur. It’s an entirely different world from other parts of the country. It’s a gated community, and its inhabitants enjoy such luxuries as underground electrical systems and water supply networks, 24 hour-electricity supply (the only other place such privileged is the Nigerian President’s residence), extremely tight security, good road layout, a central sewage system and treatment plant and the well-cherished company of fellow wealthy folks.

Fury over George Floyd Sweeps US: Donald Trump Puts Army On Notice To Deploy To US Streets For First Time Since LA Riots In 1992 As 19-Year-Old is shot dead in Detroit and Minneapolis erupts for fourth night

White House goes into lockdown amid countrywide demonstrations over the death of George

Soldiers in North Carolina and New York must be ready to move into Minneapolis within four hours to tackle the escalating civil unrest spreading across America. This marks the first time these emergency powers have been evoked since 1992 when riots broke out in the streets of LA after black man Rodney King was beaten up by white cops. 

Violent protests demanding justice for George Floyd spread across the US Friday night. Looting broke out in Minneapolis as protesters defied curfew and the National Guard failed to keep control. In Atlanta, the CNN headquarters was under siege and protesters threw a smoke bomb at cops defending it. In New York, protesters surrounded a police precinct in Brooklyn where an NYPD cop was seen violently throwing a woman to the ground. 

The White House was forced to go into temporary lockdown as demonstrators tried to scale the walls. This comes as white cop Derek Chauvin was charged with murder Friday over Floyd's death but the other three cops still walk free.

A troop of monkeys in India are currently on the run with blood samples of four Covid-19 patients. The primates attacked a laboratory technician and snatched away the samples earlier this week, authorities said. The attack occurred when the technician was walking in the campus of a state-run medical college in Meerut, 460 km (285 miles) north of Lucknow, capital of Uttar Pradesh state. 

Dr S. K. Garg, a top official at the college, said: ‘Monkeys grabbed and fled with the blood samples of four COVID-19 patients who are undergoing treatment … we had to take their blood samples again.’ Authorities said they were not clear if the monkeys had spilt the blood samples, but people living near the leafy campus feared further spread of the virus if the monkeys carried the samples into residential areas.

Derek Chauvin taken into custody after George Floyd death
Fired police officer Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged with the murder of black man George Floyd. The white former Minneapolis cop was taken into custody by the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on Friday afternoon - he faces a third-degree murder charge.

Three other officers - Thomas Lane, Tou Thao, and J Alexander Kueng – have also been fired over Floyd’s arrest. County Attorney Mike Freeman said these three officers have not yet been charged but he anticipated charges. Floyd’s ‘murder’ has sparked protests across the country leaving Minneapolis looking like a war zone. 

He also highlighted the 'extraordinary speed' in charging the case just four days after Floyd's death, but also defended himself against questions about why it did not happen sooner. 

Trump threatens to 'assume control' of Minneapolis in extraordinary tweet about rioter 'THUGS' as National Guard rolls into the city and George Floyd protests erupt across the US

thumbnail for post ID 12774151
Riots have erupted in cities across America following the death of unarmed and handcuffed George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer. Chaos fell on Minneapolis, Minnesota this week after footage emerged of Mr Floyd gasping for air as Derek Chauvin pinned him to the floor and knelt on his neck. President Donald Trump has threatened to send the national guard ‘and get the job done right’ as unrest shows no signs of easing. Both peaceful protests and rioting have broken out in a number of US cities including Los Angeles, New York, Denver and Louisville. 

Officers were forced to run from the Minneapolis Third Police Precinct last night after a crowd broke into the building and set it ablaze. Demonstrators are also demanding justice for other African Americans who have been killed by police, including Breonna Taylor, who was shot dead by officers in March at her home in Louisville, Kentucky.

Donald Trump last night threatened to 'assume control' of Minneapolis, warning rioters in the city that 'when the looting starts the shooting starts,' as demonstrators set fire to a police precinct and protests erupted across the States. 

Trump had used Twitter to intervene in the carnage which erupted for a third night running following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody after a white officer knelt on his neck while he was filmed gasping and saying: 'I can't breathe.'  

The president's incendiary tweet is now hidden by a warning that it violated Twitter's rules about glorifying violence - but the message can be bypassed and the tweet remains live. 

Trump's first tweet in the chain accused Minneapolis 'Radical Left Mayor' Jacob Frey of showing 'a total lack of leadership' and warned he was poised to send in troops. This tweet was not hidden by Twitter.

UK Pubs and restaurants could reopen NEXT MONTH as Boris Johnson says roadmap is moving 'faster than previously thought'

Coronavirus UK: Pubs and restaurants 'could open next month'
Boris Johnson has indicated that pubs could be allowed to reopen as early as next month, giving Britons fresh hope of enjoying a drink in a beer garden this summer. The Prime Minister (inset top) told MPs he hopes to allow watering holes and restaurants to re-open earlier than July 4 - the date which has been set down in the government's roadmap out of lockdown. He says that the roadmap is moving faster than previously thought. Pubs and restaurants have been closed across Britain since the government imposed the coronavirus lockdown at the end of March. On Wednesday, Mr Johnson told MPs on the Liaison Committee: 'On hospitality... 

we are really trying to go as fast as we can. 'It is really difficult to bring forward hospitality measures in a way that involves social distancing. But I am much more optimistic about that than I was. We may be able to do things faster than I previously thought.' Pubs and restaurants face challenges over how to open under social distancing guidelines, with 80 per cent unable to follow the two-metre guidelines. However, Mr Johnson has ordered scientists to reassess the restrictions. In Paris, plastic shields separating dinners are being tested (pictured left), while one way systems could be used in pubs in Britain (pictured top right: A one-way system at a pub in Fulham).

People descended on his home Wednesday and scrawled the word 'Murderer' on his driveway, as protests over Floyd's death entered the second day in Minneapolis.   

A sign was propped up at the end of his driveway reading 'People don't kill people, cops do' as calls mounted for the fired cop to face murder charges over Floyd's death. 

Other demonstrators carried signs and wore T-shirts reading 'I can't breathe' - some of the last words Floyd said as he begged the police officer for his life.

On Tuesday afternoon in Minneapolis, hundreds of people gathered to protest the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man killed in police custody on Memorial Day. What began as a peaceful protest ended with a smaller group of demonstrators clashing with law enforcement. Police in riot gear were eventually called to the city’s third district to quell the demonstration, using tear gas and rubber bullets.

Late on Monday, a video emerged of a police officer digging his knee into Floyd’s neck, pinning him to the ground next to a squad car. While lying facedown, Floyd groans and screams “I can’t breathe.” Bystanders ask the officers to allow Floyd off the ground to check his pulse, to no avail.

The Federal Government and its agencies, over the weekend, mounted fresh pressure on the government of Osun State to hand over 27 persons caught in illegal mining of gold and have been in the custody of the state in the last three weeks.
