Hundreds of people are attending the funeral of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, many of whom did not know him personally.

The teenager, unarmed at the time, was shot by a white police officer, sparking days of protests and unrest and increasing racial tension.

Mr Brown's father, Michael Brown Snr, has appealed for peace and calm at the funeral.
