La justice fédérale américaine a annoncé mardi qu'elle renonçait à poursuivre pour crime raciste George Zimmerman, acquitté du meurtre du jeune Noir Trayvon Martin en 2012 en Floride.

Le ministre de la Justice Eric Holder a souligné dans un communiqué que la mort de Trayvon Martin avait été une "tragédie dévastatrice", mais qu'une enquête avait conclu à l'insuffisance de preuves pour inculper George Zimmerman de violation des droits civiques.
