Description

Crowds have gathered across the US to protest against Monday's decision not to charge a policeman over the killing of black teen Michael Brown. Demonstrations from New York to Seattle were mostly peaceful, with protesters chanting and waving placards. In and around the St Louis suburb of Ferguson, scene of major riots on Monday, 2,200 National Guard troops were deployed to stop further unrest. The white officer who killed Mr Brown there says he has a "clean conscience". Rajini Vaidyanathan reports.
