USA: Ferguson protesters defiant as tear gas, rubber bullets fired

United States, Ferguson
August 18, 2014 at 01:14 GMT +00:00 · Published

At least seven people were arrested, and one person critically wounded in clashes between police and protesters on Sunday in Ferguson, Missouri. Police deployed tear gas and rubber bullets against the demonstrators, and protesters are said to have thrown Molotov cocktails at police.

The latest violence comes after more than 2,000 people attended a service for Michael Brown that lasted for roughly two hours at the Greater Grace Church in Ferguson, listening to speakers including the Rev. Al Sharpton, the family of Michael Brown, civil rights lawyer Benjamin L. Crump, Martin Luther King III, Jesse Jackson and American actress Keke Palmer. Also in attendance was a cousin of Michael Brown, Eric Davis. Following the service, crowds rallied outside the church.

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon imposed a curfew on Sunday amid unrest in Ferguson triggered by the August 9 shooting of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown by white police officer, Darren Wilson. The curfew is to continue on Sunday evening and Monday morning.
