BALTIMORE (AP) — Protests in Baltimore over the death of a man in police custody have spread to other cities. From Boston to New York to Indianapolis and Washington, D.C., crowds demonstrated Wednesday over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who mysteriously suffered a spinal injury that ended his life. Protests Wednesday were mostly peaceful, but there were arrests, including some in Baltimore and at least 60 in New York City.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake says officials are working hard to make the investigation into the death of Freddie Gray transparent and keep the community informed. Gray, who was arrested earlier this month, sustained severe spinal injuries and died a week later. Police plan to turn over findings from their investigation to the state's attorney on Friday.

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Five days after a powerful earthquake, Nepal's capital Kathmandu is slowly returning to the way it was before the quake.

But people are still on edge. A 27-year-old banker in the city says people still fear that a big aftershock is coming. The death toll from Saturday's quake is now past 5,500 and thousands more are homeless.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jurors in the trial of a man accused in the 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz (AY-tahn PAYTS) are heading back to a New York courtroom Thursday after saying they were deadlocked.

A judge told them to keep trying, and the jurors have made the unusual request to have closing arguments re-read. Etan Patz disappeared while walking to his Manhattan school bus stop. He was one of the first missing children to appear on a milk carton.
