Musicians perform during funeral service for Michael Brown at Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church in St. LouisBy Edward McAllister ST. LOUIS (Reuters) - More than 100 demonstrators marched in St. Louis on Tuesday demanding the arrest of a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. The death of Michael Brown, 18, focused global attention on the state of race relations in the United States and evoked memories of other racially charged cases, including the fatal shooting of black 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012. Family and supporters of Brown celebrated his life on Monday at a music-filled funeral service at a St. Louis church that rang with calls for peace and police reforms. The Aug. 9 shooting sparked two weeks of demonstrations, some with violent clashes and scores of arrests, in which protesters demanded Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson be charged in Brown's death.

A woman dances on top of a van while other people set up camp on Blockhouse Beach at Pyramid Lake on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, northeast of Reno, Nev. Thousands of Burning Man enthusiasts were on the outside looking in Monday after a rare batch of heavy rain forced organizers to temporarily close entry to the counterculture event in the desert 90 miles north of Reno. Many took advantage of the opportunity to camp at Pyramid Lake and made the best of the lake's beaches. (AP Photo/Reno Gazette-Journal, Tim Dunn)Ah, Burning Man, the annual weeklong rave that draws thousands of free-thinkers to a remote spot in the Nevada desert. It's a festival so remote and bizarre that the only limit to free expression is imagination ... and that dust that always gets into the electronics.
