Tense Ferguson braces for US grand jury decision

Protestors block traffic as they take to the streets in Ferguson, Missouri on November 22, 2014The father of a black teenager killed by police in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson sought to ease tensions as protesters stepped up calls for a grand jury to indict the white officer responsible. The predominantly African American community has been on edge over the jury’s expected decision. US President Barack Obama has called for calm, Missouri’s governor declared a state of emergency and the FBI deployed extra personnel. The jury can either indict police officer Darren Wilson, meaning he could face trial for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9, or determine there is no case for him to answer.
