USA: Smashed glass and broken paving stones cover Ferguson's streets

United States, St Louis
August 18, 2014 at 15:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

Ferguson's streets were filled with broken glass, debris from clashes and disused clothes garments as police cleared the centre of town, Sunday. Police had fired upon protesters with tear gas and smoke rounds in a bid to drive back protesters who were marching towards the police's temporary base.

With the curfew now in effect, scores still remain on the streets around Ferguson and tensions once again are high in the St Louis suburb. 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.

Unrest in Ferguson was 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.
