An Indonesian police firing squad boards a boat in Cilacap to cross to Nusakambangan maximum security prison on April 28, 2015, ahead of the planned execution of drug convictsIndonesia early Wednesday executed seven foreign drug convicts including two Australians by firing squad but a Filipina was spared at the 11th hour, local reports said. Eight convicts -- two Australians, one from Brazil and four from Africa, as well as the Indonesian -- were put to death on the high-security prison island of Nusakambangan, the reports said. In Indonesian executions, convicts are led to clearings just after midnight, tied to posts and then giving the option of kneeling, standing or sitting before being executed by 12-man firing squads.

The inside of a looted an torched CVS Pharmacy in Baltimore, Maryland, on April 28, 2015Baltimore resident Rashid Khan borrowed money from friends to open his grocery store two years ago -- a going concern in one of the city's poorest neighborhoods. "Inside is gone, they broke everything," he said, speaking in the scarred streets of west Baltimore Tuesday, where hundreds of people, armed with rubber gloves and garbage bags, joined a clean-up effort amid heavy police presence. Freddie Gray died on April 19, a week after he was arrested by Baltimore police and somehow suffered severe spinal injuries. Protesters in Baltimore have staged nightly demonstrations since Gray's death, which descended into chaos on Monday following his funeral.

Two cars burn in the middle of an intersection at New Shiloh Baptist Church on April 27, 2015 in Baltimore, MarylandThe rioting in Baltimore is a punch in the gut for a major American city struggling to overcome a history of drugs, crime, police brutality, poverty, population decline and economic hard times. Bustling bars and trendy shops fill the shiny redeveloped Inner Harbor district, and the hipster-friendly Hampden neighborhood reflects Baltimore's keen embrace of quirkiness. Benches at bus stops declare Baltimore to be "The Greatest City in America." Others like to call it "Charm City," a nickname dreamed up by advertising executives in the 1970s in the midst -- rather incongruously -- of a garbage strike. Opportunity can be as hard to find as a well-stocked grocery store, and everyone has a personal tale of police harassment.
