The police killing of a second black man in Missouri in 11 days has threatened to further escalate tension.

Police officers shot dead a man who brandished a knife at them.

The 9th August shooting of Michael Brown, sparked days of violent protests in the town of Ferguson, prompting a heavy police crackdown.

There is widespread anger against the mainly white police force for killing Brown, who was unarmed.

US Attorney General Eric Holder is due to visit Ferguson tomorrow to meet officials investigating the killing.
