By Lacey Johnson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - At least 2,000 people marched through downtown Baltimore on Saturday to protest the unexplained death of a black man in police custody, and authorities said some demonstrators threw objects at officers and broke windows. In the biggest protest since 25-year-old Freddie Gray died on Sunday, two separate clusters of protesters chanting "shut it down" began marching. After the rally, some groups of protesters fanned out across the city and disturbances were reported. Baltimore police said on Twitter that some protesters threw objects at officers and broke windows.

Russian 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.
