Pockets of violence erupt in Baltimore after march to protest black man's death

Protesters are gathered for a rally to protest the death of Freddie Gray who died following an arrest in BaltimoreBy Lacey Johnson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Thousands of people marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday to protest the unexplained death of a black man in police custody but the demonstrations turned violent when some protesters threw metal objects at officers and broke windows. Saturday's protests began peacefully, with at least 2,000 demonstrators marching to City Hall for a rally, the biggest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died six days ago, a week after his arrest. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said the overwhelming majority of the protesters were peaceful but that agitators disrupted the demonstration. ?After a week of peaceful demonstrations I am profoundly disappointed to see the violence in our city this evening,? Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference.

Illustration file picture shows a man typing on a computer keyboard in WarsawRussian hackers who penetrated sensitive parts of the White House computer system last year read President Barack Obama's unclassified emails, the New York Times reported on Saturday, quoting U.S. officials. "There is no evidence that the president's email account itself was hacked, White House officials said. Still, the fact that some of Mr. Obama's communications were among those retrieved by hackers has been one of the most closely held findings of the inquiry," the paper said. A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on the report but the White House earlier this month confirmed the breach, saying it took place last year and that it did not affect classified information.
