A family sits inside their makeshift shelter at an open ground after an earthquake in KathmanduBy Gopal Sharma and Sanjeev Miglani KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Thousands of desperate Nepalese huddled under tents and sought scarce food and medical supplies on Monday, two days after a massive quake killed more than 2,500 people, as overwhelmed authorities struggled to care for the wounded and homeless. The sick and wounded lay out in the open in the capital, Kathmandu, unable to find beds in the devastated city's hospitals. "We are overwhelmed with rescue and assistance requests from all across the country," said Deepak Panda, a member of the country's disaster management. Across Kathmandu and beyond, exhausted families whose homes were either flattened or at risk of collapse laid mattresses out on streets and erected tents to shelter from rain.

People rally for support of Freddie Gray, who died following an arrest in Baltimore, at his wake in Baltimore, MarylandBy Shannon Stapleton BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore's mayor and police on Sunday again blamed outside agitators for violence and vandalism that flared during a mostly peaceful protest over last week's death of a young black man who sustained an unexplained spinal injury while under arrest. A day after thousands of demonstrators marched through the city demanding justice in the investigation into the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, 25, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake condemned the lawlessness that erupted on Saturday. "Last night we saw a small group of agitators turning what was otherwise a peaceful demonstration into violent disruptions," Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference held by civic leaders and clergy at a Baltimore church, echoing comments she made Saturday night.
