Anger in the city remains at boiling point over the killing of 32-year-old Philando Castile on Wednesday.

The situation in Dallas, where five white police officers were gunned down by a sniper on Thursday night, also remains tense.

Amid fresh security fears, officers and residents in the city are still trying to come to terms with the shootings.

Hundreds of people, including Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, continue to pay tribute to the five dead officers at a makeshift memorial outside the city’s police headquarters.
