Tear gas fired at crowd in US protest

Missouri National Guard near a Shopping Center in Ferguson, Missouri on August 18, 2014Police fired tear gas Monday to break up a crowd of demonstrators in this Missouri town where a black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer nine days ago. They then let lose with a volley of tear gas just after 11 pm (0400 GMT), sending the crowd — smaller than the one that clashed with police on Sunday — scurrying. The standoff occurred near the residential street where 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a local police officer in this St Louis suburb.
