Ferguson protests: Thousands in Washington civil rights march

Thousands have gathered in Washington DC to protest against the deaths of unarmed black people at the hands of police.

Community leader Martin Baez said: "We are here to fight for equal justice".

The decisions not to prosecute the police officers who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York have caused anger among many in America.
