    0

    FERGUSON, Missouri: Several hundred people marched Saturday in Ferguson to mark the first anniversary of the police shooting of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, which shone a spotlight on race relations in America. The daytime rally ahead of Sunday’s anniversary was peaceful and boisterous, but protesters appeared more confrontational later in the evening, facing off with police officers. The riots that erupted in Ferguson after Brown’s death spread to other US cities and energized debate on how white police in America treat blacks, especially young black men, particularly when it comes to the use of lethal force.
