Attorney general meets with police

US attorney general Eric Holder has met with the officer in charge of security in Ferguson since the shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer.

Mr Holder was visiting a restaurant in the St Louis suburb when Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson met with him.

Captain Johnson has been overseeing the protests after several nights of unrest in St Louis stemming from the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown.

Mr Holder then left Ferguson and was on his way to St Louis to meet with the FBI and others involved in the independent federal investigation.

Earlier in the day, the attorney general met with community college students to discuss their own interaction with local police.
