Tensions Rise Amid Renewed Unrest in Ferguson, Missouri

Aug. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Tensions rose anew in Ferguson, Missouri, overnight with protesters storming the convenience store where an unarmed black teenager had been before he was shot and killed by police last week. Police clashed with about 200 protesters during a four-hour standoff, at one point using tear gas and flash grenades. Several other stores were also looted and some protesters hurled bottles and other objects at police. The skirmishes marked the first confrontations since the highway patrol assumed responsibility for security in Ferguson on Aug. 14. (Source: Bloomberg)
