USA: Baltimore unrest aftermath, clear-up under way

United States, Baltimore
April 28, 2015 at 03:12 GMT +00:00 · Published

Residents of Baltimore began to clear up the debris on Tuesday, after police and anti-police brutality protesters clashed overnight. Several buildings were set alight, including a CVS pharmacy in the north-west of the city.

Violence broke out on Monday, just hours after the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died in police custody on April 19, 2015. Gray's family say he suffered a severe spinal injury, that his voice box was crushed and his neck was snapped before he went into a coma and died. Police reports indicate that these injuries were sustained after his arrest.

A state-of-emergency has been declared in Baltimore, imposing a 22.00 to 05.00 curfew, which will last for at least a week. The National Guard has also been activated and have been dispatched to the area.
