Meanwhile, the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson has erupted in a fresh wave of rioting, looting and violent clashes between police and protesters.
The protests broke out on Monday after a grand jury chose not to press charges against white police officer Darren Wilson, who fatally shot unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown in August.
