African-American farmers have staged a massive protest in Washington DC calling on the US government to deliver on cash payments promised to the group years ago.

In 1999, they won a landmark case that granted them a billion-dollar compensation settlement on the grounds of racial discrimination by US authorities.

But now the group says that tens of thousands of farmers have not received the funds that they were promised.
