National Guard deploys as curfew lifted in violence-hit Missouri town

By Ellen Wulfhorst and Scott Malone

FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) – Missouri’s governor lifted the curfew for the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson on Monday as National Guard troops were called out after days of violent unrest sparked by the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman.

The National Guard deployment is the latest in a series of steps by authorities to end the looting and burning of stores that have punctuated protests and raised questions about race relations in the United States since the shooting death of Michael Brown, 18, more than a week ago.
