Disturbing new footage from the moment George Floyd was killed by US police show that police officers don't even pay attention to the calls of the people present at the scene about the victim's suffocation.

Iran Press/America: "You’re going to let him kill that man in front of you?" one of the bystanders said, trying to save his life.

Floyd's neck and chest were pressed to the ground by policemen for nearly nine minutes, despite the victim's pleas that he could not breathe.

George Floyd died at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer less than two weeks ago, after a shopkeeper accused Floyd of passing a bad $20 bill. The video of Floyd pleading with the officer, who pressed a knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes until Floyd stopped moving, sparked widespread outrage and mass protests across the country.
