The white officer hugged five-year-old African American Simone Bartee as her mother wiped away her tears, and reassured her that he was there to protect her.

"You can protest, you can party, you can do whatever you want," the officer said.

Bartee and her parents were attending a protest in Houston, one of many demonstrations taking place across the U.S., sparked by the death of unarmed black man George Floyd.

Indian-origin Kamala Harris is being selected as Democratic candidate for United States Vice President. Speaking on it, her maternal uncle said, "Our family feels happy. My sister, her mother, would have been very proud of her daughter. It is a historic day for the Indian community. My sister passed away in 2009, Kamala came here to immerse her mother's ashes in the Bay of Bengal. I spoke to her last time when I was in the US, in October-December last year. Today I sent her a message of congratulations." He further said, "She could not come here frequently in the last couple of years as she is a Senator. She is Indian and likes India but that doesn't mean that anything India says is right for her. She is also Jamaican, an African-American, she uses her own judgement."
