Ferguson protesters march for police reforms

NAACP organises 200km march demanding reform of police practices, new Ferguson police chief and end to racial profiling.

    US civil rights groups have begun a long march from where unarmed black teenager Michael Brown was killed, to the house of the Governor of Missouri.

    The NAACP has organised the 200km-long protest walk to call for a reform of police practices, a new police chief in Ferguson and a national law to prevent racial profiling by police.
