17 August 2014 Last updated at 22:38 BST

Missouri governor Jay Nixon has criticised police for releasing CCTV footage which apparently shows shooting victim Michael Brown stealing.

He said the release of the footage nearly a week after a policeman shot Mr Brown in Ferguson, St Louis, "appeared to cast aspersions" on the dead man.

Meanwhile police fired smoke bombs and tear gas at a crowd which defied an overnight curfew.

Aleem Maqbool reports from Ferguson.
