Two statues of Christopher Columbus have been temporarily removed in Chicago.
It comes a week after protesters attempted to topple a statue of the Italian explorer in the city.
Although temporary, they are the latest monuments to be removed amid an ongoing backlash against perceived symbols of racial bias and imperialism in the US.
The movement has been sparked by the death in police custody of African American George Floyd.
His death in Minneapolis has led to protests in the US and internationally against police brutality and racial inequality.
The office of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a statement that the Columbus statues – in Grant Park and Arrigo Park – had been “temporarily removed… until further notice” on her orders.
The decision came after protesters clashed with police as they attempted topple the statue of the explorer in Grant Park last week.
