Somali Flag Raised Over Minneapolis As Rioters Take To The Streets

The recent death of Dolal Idd at the hands of police officers has resulted in more violent protests in Minneapolis. The incident that served as a catalyst for the protests involved Dolal Idd who is alleged to have tried to ram his vehicle into officers before firing off a handgun and was subsequently shot and killed by those police officers.
