FERGUSON Mo (Reuters) - The mother of an unarmed black teenager shot dead by a white officer in Ferguson, Missouri, walked with hundreds of protesters on Saturday in the St. Louis suburb, as part of a weekend of demonstrations against police violence.

Fresh protests over the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown took place just days after an off-duty officer in the city shot and killed another black teen. Organizers sought to maintain order at rallies which drew thousands of people in the St. Louis area.
