By Scott Malone and Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - The mayor of Baltimore on Sunday lifted a night curfew imposed on the city last week after a spate of looting and arson that followed the funeral of a young black man who died from injuries suffered while in the police custody. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she believed sufficient calm had returned to allow her to end the 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew, which went into effect last Tuesday after protests over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray turned violent on Monday. "I believe we have reached that point today." Speaking in front of a mall that was looted on Monday, the mayor also said the Maryland National Guard would begin withdrawing from the streets over the next week. As of Saturday, there were about 2,600 troops helping law enforcement officers patrol the city and enforce the curfew, the guard said.
Soccer-Mourinho joy tempered by father's illness
Jose Mourinho said the build-up to Chelsea's title-clinching victory over Crystal Palace had been overshadowed by his father's health problems back in Portugal. The Chelsea boss was in a sober mood after a 1-0 win sealed his third Premier League title with the London club, having been preoccupied with his father Jose's health. "When the game finished at Leicester (on Wednesday) I immediately went to Portugal, I was there with him at the most difficult moment, the surgery," Mourinho told reporters. He's strong and is getting better and better so I'm much more relaxed." Mourinho also said that midfielder Ramires had been taken to hospital before the game.
