Jay-Z And Beyoncé At Trayvon Martin Rally
Pop star couple support protest over controversial shooting...
Jay-Zand Beyoncé have attended a rally seeking justice for Trayvon Martin in New York.
The rapper and R&B star lent their support to the event - one of a string of protests held across the US a week after George Zimmerman, 29, was cleared of murdering 17-year-old Martin.
Neighbourhood watch volunteer Zimmerman shot Martin dead in Florida in February last year - and the jury agreed that he was acting in self-defence because he felt threatened.
Civil rights activist the Reverend Al Sharpton - who posted a picture of himself with Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Trayvon's mother Sybrina Fulton on Twitter - is now calling for an urgent review of Florida's controversial "stand your ground" law, under which Zimmerman was cleared.
Crowds at the NYC rally reportedly praised Jay and Bey for showing up, with Digital Spy reporting shouts of "Thank you, Jay!" and "no concerts in Florida".
Jay-Z recently visited the real Magna Carta in Britain.
