New York probes suffocation of Black man hooded by police

NEW YORK (AFP) – Several hundred peaceful demonstrators marched yesterday in New York’s Times Square over the death of a Black man that police hooded and forced face down on the road, according to video footage that prompted a probe from the state’s attorney general.

The demonstrators gathered under a steady rain to demand justice for Daniel Prude, whose family said he died on March 30 after being removed from life support, seven days after the police encounter upstate in the city of Rochester.
