President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with Attorney General Eric Holder in the Oval Office on Monday afternoon to receive an update on clashes between civilians and police in Ferguson, Mo.

The city saw another night of heated clashes on Sunday following the murder of an 18-year-old black man by a police officer on Aug. 9.

The president returned to Washington late on Sunday night after spending the week with his family in Martha’s Vineyard.
