Police and Maryland National Guard members stand guard outside City Hall in Baltimore, Maryland on April 28, 2015Armed National Guard troopers in battledress deployed in force in Baltimore on Tuesday after a riot triggered by anger over the death of an African American arrested by police. Thousands of military and police reinforcements have been ordered to the US port city to quell unrest in which cars were torched, stores looted and officers attacked. "This violence is not going to be tolerated," he told reporters at the temporary checkpoint, manned by riot police and Guard troopers with assault rifles. Baltimore has declared an overnight curfew from 10:00 pm Tuesday (0200 GMT Wednesday) and local and national leaders have appealed for calm after the latest in a series of incidents to stir US racial tension.
