WASHINGTON (AP) - Protesters angered by last week’s decision by a grand jury not to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager have lain down in front of the Justice Department headquarters in Washington.

The protest against the grand jury decision in Ferguson, Missouri, was expected to continue with a rally later Monday afternoon at the Justice Department.

Earlier Monday, protesters lay in the middle of the roadway on the 14th Street Bridge, one of the main routes into Washington from Virginia. It was the third straight day that protesters had blocked traffic in the nation’s capital.

They carried signs that read “Black lives matter” and “accountability for killer cops.”
