Ferguson 'night of tension' after police release CCTV video

Riot police have confronted dozens of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, as tensions again rose over the shooting of a black teenager by police there.

Several stores were looted and bottles thrown in the area of a convenience store, shown in CCTV footage released by police to demonstrate that Michael Brown, 18, was a robbery suspect.

The footage appears to show Mr Brown stealing and intimidating the owner.

The unrest came despite an appeal for calm by Mr Brown's family.

Tom Esslemont reports.
