Missouri Governor Jay Nixon lifts curfew, sends National Guard into Ferguson after more violent protests
(NBC News) -
National Guard troops have arrived in Ferguson, Missouri.
Their presence follows yet another night of violent clashes between police and protesters angered by the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.
Authorities say the National Guard soldiers will protect the police command center, in turn allowing the Missouri State Highway Patrol now providing security in Ferguson can more closely monitor the protests.
A midnight curfew in place over the weekend has also been lifted.
