Protests against killing of black teen continue in Ferguson


by PressTV

Protesters have once again taken to the streets in the U-S State of Missouri, demanding justice for slain African-American teenager Michael Brown.

The protesters accuse police of racial discrimination against African-Americans and called on authorities to bring to justice the officer who murdered the 18-year-old teenager. Nearly 50 people were arrested in the latest round of demonstrations after police tried to disperse the protesters. Police earlier told journalists to leave the streets and go to their designated area or they TOO will be arrested. The unrest in Ferguson has forced the security forces to use heavy-handed tactics, such as firing tear gas and rubber bullets, which has caused injuries. But the Missouri police say Tuesday's protest was less violent than previous nights.
