Baltimore curfew holds amid reports of renewed protests in Ferguson
A curfew enforced following two days of riots in the US city of Baltimore has been largely followed. Social media users and local media, however, have reported protests reignited violence in Ferguson, Missouri.
Authorities imposed the emergency seven-hour at 10:00 p.m. local time on Tuesday (0200 UTC Wednesday) in a bid to stave off another night of violence similar to what erupted after the funeral of 25-year-old Freddie Gray – an African-American man who died on April 19 from injuries sustained in while in police custody. The curfew will be re-imposed each night for a week.
People who remain on the street – who do not meet the exceptions – are now in violation of the emergency curfew.
