Ferguson: Tensions run high amid hunt for police officer attackers

Protesters have gathered outside the local police headquarters in Ferguson, Missouri, once again to demand justice.

The demonstration was held on Thursday night in the wake of a scathing report detailing deep-rooted bias with the St Louis suburb’s mostly white police force.

The shooting of two police officers at another rally on Wednesday has further stoked tensions, an attack condemned by US President Barack Obama and one that has triggered a sweeping manhunt.

There have been several demonstrations since the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white officer last August.

Ferguson is now at the centre of a national debate in the US over race and policing.
