Police Clash with Protesters Who Defy Curfew

New York Times: "Hours after Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) imposed a midnight-to-5 a.m. curfew on Saturday in this small city, a group of protesters defied the order and violence flared briefly on Sunday morning, a week after demonstrations erupted over the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer."

"A clash between the protesters and dozens of police officers in riot gear began less than 30 minutes after the curfew took effect and ended about 45 minutes later with the arrest of seven people, all charged with 'failure to disperse.'"
