Los Angeles mayor takes knee amid peaceful protests

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Thousands thronged the streets of Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area in peaceful protests over the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. But police cordons kept a tight watch on marchers Tuesday and authorities have renewed overnight curfews in LA and other areas that have seen clashes with police and groups of thieves ransacking businesses. Mayor Eric Garcetti took a knee at a demonstration at police headquarters, one of several around the city during the day. An afternoon gathering at City Hall attracted several thousand protesters.
