Baltimore lifted a curfew Sunday that was imposed across the US East Coast city following widespread riots, as thousands of National Guard troops began to pull out. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had faced growing calls for the curfew to be scrapped, particularly from store and restaurant owners who said the 10:00 pm to 5:00 am nightly restriction was wrecking business. The riots stemmed from protests over the death of Freddie Gray, 25, who suffered a serious spinal injury while in the back of a police van on April 12. A total of 113 officers were wounded and 486 protesters were arrested, including 46 overnight into Sunday, Baltimore police spokesman Captain Eric Kowalczyk told reporters.
The Saudi-led coalition battling rebels in Yemen sent a "limited" force to the city of Aden, Yemeni sources said, in what would be its first ground deployment inside the country. "A limited coalition force entered Aden and another force is on its way" to the port city, a Yemeni government official in Aden told AFP, requesting anonymity. The coalition launched air strikes against the Iran-backed Shiite Huthi rebels and their allies on March 26 after they seized control of large parts of the country and advanced on Aden, where President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi had taken refuge.
