Watch: How Minneapolis is bracing itself for the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial

Closing arguments are underway in the trial of the white ex-police officer accused of murdering African-American George Floyd, a case that laid bare racial wounds in the United States and has come to be seen as a pivotal test of police accountability.

Derek Chauvin, a 19-year veteran of the Minneapolis Police Department, faces a maximum of 40 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charge - second-degree murder.

After the closing arguments, the jury will be sequestered for deliberations. A conviction on any of the charges - second-degree murder, third-degree murder or manslaughter - will require the jury to return a unanimous verdict.

In the video above, The Telegraph's Washington correspondent, Rozina Sabur, describes how Minneapolis is preparing itself for the verdict, with many people bracing for protests and violence.
