George Floyd death: Pelosi, Democrats kneel for 8 minutes 46 seconds to honour Floyd

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic members of Congress kneeled in silence for eight minutes and 46 seconds on the marble floor of Emancipation Hall in the U.S. Capitol on Monday, the duration that Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of George Floyd as he died.

U.S. Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer said the duration was an excruciating, unbearable amount of time and the tribute was necessary to acknowledge the pain and suffering of Black Americans.

Before kneeling, Pelosi read out a list of names of other Black Americans who died at the hands of police officers.
