BALTIMORE (AP) — A group of protesters is marching from Baltimore's Penn Station to City Hall to protest Freddie Gray's death after being hurt while in police custody. People have been chanting, "Tell the truth. Stop the lies. Freddie Gray didn't have to die." The marchers included a large number of college students. Several hundred people also have gathered in New York City to protest Gray's death.

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — The first supplies of food aid have begun reaching remote mountain villages in Nepal. Helicopters finally brought food, temporary shelter and other aid to hamlets north of Kathmandu in the mountainous Gorkha District. It's near the epicenter of Saturday's 7.8-magnitude quake. Entire clusters of homes there were reduced to piles of stone and splintered wood.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe (shin-zoh ah-bay) has offered condolences for Americans killed in World War II. But, in the first address by a Japanese leader to a joint meeting of Congress, Abe stopped short of apologizing for wartime atrocities. He also skirted another issue that some U.S. lawmakers had also been urging him to address — the sexual slavery of tens of thousands of Asian women by Japan's military.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California's governor is calling for the state to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels over the next 15 years. Gov. Jerry Brown's order aligns California's greenhouse-gas reduction targets with those of leading international governments ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris later this year. The order doesn't say how the state will achieve the reductions, which are the equivalent of taking 36 million cars off the road. That's more than all the vehicles registered in California last year.

HONOLULU (AP) — A shark has killed a 65-year-old woman in an attack off the shore of Maui. The Maui Fire Department says snorkelers found the woman about 200 yards from shore at a popular surfing spot about a mile south of Big Beach, Makena State Park. The Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources has closed waters in the area to swimmers.
