Baltimore smolders after riot over black man's police-custody death

People stand outside the burned community center and apartments across the street from the Southern Baptist Church in Baltimore, MarylandBy Ian Simpson and Warren Strobel BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore residents on Tuesday began cleaning up the wreckage from rioting and fires that erupted after the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after suffering a spinal injury in police custody. Acrid smoke hung over streets where fire crews raced to contain damage from violence that broke out just blocks from the funeral of Freddie Gray and spread through much of the poor West Baltimore neighborhood. Looters had ransacked stores, pharmacies and a shopping mall and clashed with police in riot gear in the most violent unrest in the United States since Ferguson, Missouri, was torn by gunshots and arson in late 2014. On Tuesday, volunteers in Baltimore swept up charred debris in front of a CVS pharmacy as dozens of police officers in riot gear stood by and firefighters worked to damp down the embers.

New bird flu cases probable in Iowa, millions of birds affected: Iowa
By P.J. Huffstutter CHICAGO (Reuters) - (This April 27, 2015 story was refiled to correct the seventh paragraph to show that the USDA corrects to chicken farm from turkey farm.) Initial tests have found probable avian influenza outbreaks at five new commercial poultry sites in Iowa, affecting more than 6 million birds, the state's agriculture department and the U.S. Department of Agriculture said on Monday. In the avian influenza outbreak of 1983 to 1984 in the northeast, which was the largest in U.S. history, about 17 million birds were culled. "This is a big deal," Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said during a conference call on Monday. Or does this mean more birds as we go forward." Iowa state officials have quarantined the five farm sites, Northey said.
Supreme Court poised to hear landmark gay marriage case

Gay marriage supporters hold a gay rights flag in front of the U.S. Supreme Court before a hearing about gay marriageBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The nine justices of the Supreme Court were set on Tuesday to hear arguments on whether the Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry, taking up a contentious social issue in what promises to be the year's most anticipated ruling. Gay marriage advocates held up signs with slogans including "Love for all" and "America is ready for freedom to marry." A small, vocal group of people against legalizing gay marriage held signs including one calling gay sex sinful and another stating, "Satan rules over all, the children of pride." The decision, due by the end of June, will determine whether gay marriage will be legal nationwide. The arguments center on gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee, four of the 13 states that currently prohibit it. All eyes will be on conservative Justice Anthony Kennedy, who may cast the deciding fifth vote on a court closely divided on gay rights.
