KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Runway damage at Nepal's only international airport appears likely to limit the amount of aid and emergency personnel who can fly in. The weight of all the big jets flying in has been too much but officials say the medium size jets the runway was designed for can still land. Rescuers at a remote village along a trekking trail have found 51 bodies including several foreigners. And officials say they are health concerns because of the lack of certain medicines.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Today it's prayer and healing after a victory rally yesterday for people seeking racial justice and rebuilding for Baltimore after the death of a man following his arrest. Six officers face charges. Residents and leaders have called on the city to lift a 10 p.m. curfew, but it appears the restriction will be allowed to run its course. It officially ends Monday morning.

Two traffic policemen were among those killed. There's no word on reports that 25 minority Yazidi prisoners were executed.
