Hundreds people took to the streets of New York City to protest the recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, a one day after five police officers were killed and seven others wounded during a protest in Dallas.
Hundreds of people marched through Times Square in New York City to protest the deaths this week of Philando Castile and Alton.
"Hands up! Don't shoot!," they chanted, and held signs calling for justice for the African-American victims of police killings.
"We're not walking against police," said one rally leader at the WilliamsburgBridge. "We're against bad cops. These guys have family," NBC quoted a protestor.
The protesters disrupted traffic through much of midtown Manhattan. Police in riot gear were patrolling the streets after the protesters marched. More than 20 square blocks remained cordoned off.
Five police officers were killed and seven others injured by snipers on Thursday in "ambush style" firing in the US city of Dallas during a protest against the fatal police shootings of black men this week, making it one of the deadliest attacks on law enforcers in America since 9/11.
The main suspect has been identified as 25-year-old Micah Johnson, who was later killed in a blast caused by a robot-controlled explosive device sent in by officers. Johnson was army reservist and Afghan veteran, officials said.
