African nations seek UN inquiry into U.S. racism, 'police brutality'

Reuters|
African countries are lobbying to set up a United Nations inquiry into "systemic racism" and "police brutality" in the United States and elsewhere, aiming to defend the rights of people of African descent, a draft resolution seen by Reuters shows.
The text, circulating among diplomats in Geneva, voices alarm at "recent incidents of police brutality against peaceful demonstrators defending the rights of Africans and of people of African descent".
It is due to be considered at an urgent debate of the UN Human Rights Council on Wednesday.
