People walk past a business on November 25, 2014 which was destroyed following the grand jury decision not to charge a police officer who shot dead an 18-year-old black teenagerMore than 2,000 soldiers were ordered into the riot-torn US town of Ferguson on Tuesday as the family of a slain black teenager denounced the "broken" justice system that failed to indict the white policeman who shot him. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon said the National Guard presence in the Ferguson area would be tripled to 2,200 after a night of racially-charged violent protests following Monday's decision by a grand jury. Lawyers for the family of slain youth Michael Brown, backed by civil rights leaders, denounced the prosecutor whose grand jury hearing found that the officer had killed the 18-year-old in self-defense. Rioting, looting and arson attacks erupted in Ferguson overnight after the decision, despite a huge deployment of police and state troopers, and the St Louis suburb was braced for more to come.

Both men are U.S. citizens of Somali ancestry. ...
