Tear gas fired at protesters after US teen's death

An Al Jazeera television crew, covering demonstrators protesting the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown, scramble for cover as police fire tear gas into their reporting position, in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 13, 2014Missouri police fired tear gas and smoke bombs late Wednesday at a crowd of protesters demonstrating against the death of an unarmed black teen by an officer, US media reported. CNN and other media reported that police officers in riot gear marched toward the protesters near a burned out gas station where demonstrators have gathered in the town of Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb. Police separately arrested two journalists reporting on the unrest that has roiled Ferguson since aspiring college student Michael Brown, 18, died Saturday in a police shooting. His death has triggered rioting and stirred comparisons to the February 2012 fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida.
