Obama addresses volatile unrest in Ferguson Updated: 2014-08-19 22:07:41 KST

And in the U.S. town of Ferguson fresh protests have reportedly broken out, over the deadly police shooting of an unarmed black teenager more than a week ago.
On Monday Missouri state Governor Jay Nixon lifted the overnight curfew on the St. Louis suburb after ordering the National Guard to restore calm after days of rioting.
Protesters continue to demand that officer Darren Wilson be held accountable for the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
U.S. President Barack Obama addressed the situation and urged the governor to ensure the National Guard troops were involved in a "limited and appropriate" way.
The county prosecutor's office said a grand jury could begin hearing evidence against Wilson as soon as Wednesday to determine if he will be charged with the shooting.
