After more than two months headlines around the world focused on a single topic — COVID-19 — collective attention has turned to another story: the death of an unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of four police officers in the American city of Minneapolis on May 25th, and the violent protests that followed in cities across the country, as U.S. President Donald Trump seemed to encourage more violence. Protests have been escalating for a week, with chaotic scenes of riots and buildings set on fire now everywhere on newspapers front pages from around the world:
