It’s 20 years since the race riots sparked by the police beating of Rodney King that shook Los Angeles and the US. See how the LA streets affected look now and how the news was covered with reports from our archive:
From the archive: Riots fire US race divide

The United States was tottering last night on the brink of a new racial crisis, pitting black against white in the nation’s cities, which turned Los Angeles into a war zone on Wednesday night. In Atlanta, the last resting place of Martin Luther King, students went on a copycat rampage in a shopping mall. Police reported a number of beatings and arrests. In Washington, President Bush went on television to appeal for calm, trying to contain a potentially explosive situation nationwide after the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers accused of beating a black motorist, Rodney King.
