Baltimore erupts in riots after funeral of man who died in police custody
By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Hundreds of rioters looted businesses and set buildings on fire in Baltimore on Monday in widespread violence that injured at least 15 police officers following the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after he was injured in police custody. The disturbances broke out just a few blocks from the funeral of Freddie Gray and then spread through parts of Baltimore in the most violent U.S. demonstrations since looting in Ferguson, Missouri, last year. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard as firefighters battled blazes set by looters. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake called the rioters "thugs" and instituted a citywide curfew for all adults and minors beginning Tuesday night.

Shock turns to anger as Nepalese wait for quake assistance
By Rupam Jain Nair and Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Shock turned to anger in Nepal on Tuesday, as some of the tens of thousands of people stricken by the weekend's devastating earthquake expressed frustration at what they said was their government's slow response to the crisis. International aid has finally begun to arrive in the Himalayan nation of 28 million people, as the death toll topped 3,900 people. About 6,500 more people were injured in Nepal's most deadly quake in 81 years. It triggered a huge avalanche on Mount Everest that killed at least 17 climbers, including foreigners, the worst single disaster on the world's highest peak. Mon, 27 Apr 2015 20:17:50 -0400

Exclusive: Time Warner Cable open to merger talks with Charter - sources
Time Warner Cable Inc is open to merger discussions with Charter Communications Inc following a failed $45 billion bid by Comcast Corp , according to people familiar with the matter. Friendly negotiations between the two companies would be in sharp contrast to their acrimonious exchanges in 2013 and early 2014 that ended with Time Warner Cable rejecting unsolicited approaches by Charter and instead finding a white knight in Comcast. While Charter has yet to make a formal offer, Time Warner Cable believes its smaller peer may be willing to make a bid that is more attractive compared with its takeover attempt two years ago, the people said. Time Warner Cable also views Charter's stock as a more valuable currency than it did last year given its stock performance since then, the people said.

Australia formally advised of imminent Indonesia executions-foreign minister
By Jane Wardell SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said she had received a letter from her Indonesian counterpart late on Monday advising her of the imminent execution of two Australian drug traffickers and offering no hope of a reprieve. The two Australians are among nine mainly foreign prisoners scheduled to be executed in Indonesia this week despite last-minute pleas for clemency and an outstanding appeal in the Constitutional Court. "They gave no indication that (Indonesian) President (Joko) Widodo would change his mind and grant the clemency that we have sought," Bishop told the Nine Network on Tuesday. Bishop said she was not given a date or time for the executions of Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan.
