Ferguson unrest: Rev Al Sharpton vows to pursue justice

There has been widespread unrest in Ferguson after a grand jury decided not to indict a police officer following the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager.

Michael Brown was killed on 9 August sparking protests.

Civil rights leader Rev Al Sharpton, who attended a news conference with Mr Brown's family, said the jury had "broken our hearts" but he vowed to continue "to fight for a new level of accountability of policing in this country".

"We are going to continue to pursue justice," he added.
