Mayor vows to rebuild riot-torn US town of Ferguson

The mayor of the US city at the center of a deadly police shooting that sparked repeated nights of racially charged unrest pledged Sunday to rebuild. Looting erupted and businesses were set ablaze in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson after a grand jury on November 24 said white police officer Darren Wilson would face no criminal case in the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black. “We are recommitted to rebuilding the city and to once again becoming a thriving community for economic development and residential stability,” Ferguson Mayor James Knowles said at a news conference. The decision not to charge Wilson in connection with the August 9 shooting of Brown touched off days of sporadic violence in Ferguson, as well as demonstrations in several major cities across the United States.
