Rodney King, the black motorist whose 1991 videotaped beating by Los Angeles police officers was the touchstone for one of the most destructive race riots in the US history, has died, his publicist says.

King was 47.

His fiancee found his body at the bottom of a swimming pool, but there was no sign of foul play.

Al Jazeera's John Terrett reports.
