Reporters ‘arrested’ over US suburb where police killed teenager


WASHINGTON D.C.: Missouri police on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) arrested two journalists reporting on the unrest that has roiled a US suburb after an unarmed black teenager was shot dead by police, the duo said. Aspiring college student Michael Brown, 18, died on Saturday in a police shooting in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, sparking rioting. Wesley Lowery, a Washington Post political reporter, and Ryan Reilly, a Huffington Post reporter, were arrested in a McDonald’s after police entered the restaurant and ordered people to leave, the pair wrote on Twitter.
