US Attorney General Eric Holder has met the parents of Michael Brown, the black teenager who was killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri last week.

Mr Holder has promised a "full, fair and independent" investigation into the killing of Mr Brown, 18, who was unarmed when he was shot.

His death sparked 10 nights of often violent clashes between police and demonstrators.

Police said they had arrested 47 people on Tuesday night but said the violence had largely abated.

Rajini Vaidyanathan spoke to people at a vigil in Ferguson, who said they "want justice" for Michael Brown.
