This inquiry into the death of US teenager Michael Brown will take time to complete, Attorney General Eric Holder has said, as he visits Ferguson, Missouri in the aftermath of several nights of violence. In a statement, Mr Holder said:
Our investigation into this matter will be full, it will be fair, and it will be independent. And beyond the investigation itself, we will work with the police, civil rights leaders, and members of the public to ensure that this tragedy can give rise to new understanding - and robust action - aimed at bridging persistent gaps between law enforcement officials and the communities we serve.
