A grand jury has charged one police officer over the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor at her home in the US state of Kentucky.

On 13 March, Ms Taylor, 26, was shot at least five times in a mistaken drugs raid in the city of Louisville.

Her death has become a rallying cry for anti-racism protesters, who have called for the three officers involved to be arrested and charged.

Officials earlier agreed to pay her family $12m (£9.3m) in a settlement.
