In the US, activists protesting the fatal August shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white policeman in Ferguson Missouri, have staged peaceful protests in Saint Louis.

Hundreds of demonstrators blocked a major intersection near Washington University there. Meanwhile, dozens of activists lay down in the street outside of a downtown theater, pretending to have been shot by police. It was a move to pay homage to 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was shot dead by Officer Darren Wilson one-hundred days ago in Ferguson. The fresh wave of protests was triggered by the Ferguson Police Chief's announcement of the officer's possible return to the force, if acquitted.
