BALTIMORE (AP) — It's expected to be a celebration in Baltimore today as thousands of people are expected to join what's now being billed as a victory rally after charges were filed in the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a spinal injury while in police custody. The city's top prosecutor says death resulted from the way Gray was handled during the arrest, which State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby says was unlawful to begin with.

And because of the many areas isolated by road-blocking landslides, more helicopters are a big need since supply trucks can't get to the higher Himalayan foothills. More than 6,600 people died in the quake a week ago. Some areas haven't seen any aid.

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a suicide car bombing has killed at least six troops west of Baghdad where Iraqi forces and allied militias have been battling Islamic State militants.

Nine other troops were wounded.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The trial of 49 suspects, including 19 police officers, on charges relating to the mob killing of an Afghan woman has begun in the capital, Kabul.

Prosecutors say the woman was attacked after a bogus accusation that she had burned a copy of the Quran.
