The leader of the Roman Catholic Church however, condemned the violence that followed George Floyd's death as "self-destructive and self-defeating."

 

He said: "Nothing is gained by violence and so much is lost."

 

Pope Francis said he was praying for Floyd and "all those others who have lost their lives as a result of the sin of racism."

 

Since Floyd's death, protests have been held in cities across the country and some of them turned violent.
