NEW YORK, August 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Police have used tear gas and stun grenades Tuesday against protesters in the US city of Ferguson, Missouri, where local residents have been clashing with law enforcers already for the second week, local media reported.
Protest actions have been peaceful several hours before, only several people were detained. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon cancelled the curfew which was introduced in Ferguson last weekend.
Disorder broke out in the city after a police officer had shot to death black teenager Michael Brown, 18, on August 9. Ferguson’s residents accused the authorities of excessive use of force. In several cases protests grew in riots, acts of vandalism, looting took place, firearms and incendiary bottles were used by demonstrators. Meanwhile, police used tear gas.
