Ukrainian troops riding an armoured personnel carrier escort comrades with Smerch multiple launch rocket systems near the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk in the Donetsk region, March 6, 2015Russia and Germany on Friday urged the OSCE to more than double the number of its observers in Ukraine to 1,000, to monitor a sputtering ceasefire as the EU downplayed the threat of new sanctions against Moscow. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his German counterpart Franck-Walter Steinmeier "called on the OSCE to make a quick decision on extending the mandate of its special monitoring mission and ramping up its size to 1,000 observers" from the current 452, the foreign ministry in Moscow said. The ministers said more monitors from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe were required to "efficiently monitor" the latest Ukraine ceasefire between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian government troops in areas of Ukraine bordering Russia.

St. Louis County Prosecutor's Office handout evidence photo from August 9 Ferguson Police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri shows officer Darren Wilson's police badgeFerguson, Missouri, has fired three city employees and is pursuing a range of other reforms in an effort to negotiate a settlement with the U.S. Justice Department after a federal investigation accused the city of illegal practices targeting African-Americans, the mayor said on Friday. Three employees working in the police department and municipal court system were terminated due to evidence of "egregious racial bias," documented in emails and detailed in the Justice Department report released on Wednesday, said Mayor James Knowles. The firings come as the St. Louis suburb of 21,000, which has a mostly black population but a mostly white police force and city leadership, reels from the charges leveled by the Justice Department. The investigation started after a white Ferguson police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager on Aug. 9, triggering nationwide protests and illuminating long-held complaints in Ferguson and elsewhere about police treatment of minorities.
