Missouri governor criticises Ferguson police over CCTV

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.
