  • Final goodbyes before Indonesian firing squad -

    (CNN)The families of death row prisoners who are expected to be executed within the next 24 hours by Indonesian firing squad made their final visit to the island where they're being held. The Indonesian government has not confirmed the timing of the executions, but lawyers say the signs are pointing to the firing squad being given their orders shortly after midnight Tuesday. It's a day their families and friends hoped would never come, but it's also one that Indonesia, despite years of protest and legal appeals, has insisted has to happen. Under Indonesian law, the death penalty is carried out by a 12-man firing squad, although only three guns are loaded with live ammunition.

  • Baltimore riots raise questions about police response; National Guard troops called in

    National Guard troops fanned out through the city, shield-bearing police officers blocked the streets and firefighters doused still-simmering blazes early Tuesday as a growing area of Baltimore shuddered from riots following the funeral of a black man who died in police custody. The violence that started in West Baltimore on Monday afternoon — within a mile of where Freddie Gray was arrested and placed into a police van earlier this month — had by midnight spread to East Baltimore and neighbourhoods close to downtown and near the baseball stadium. It was one of the most volatile outbreaks of violence prompted by a police-involved death since the days of protests that followed the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed black man who was shot and killed during a confrontation with a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer.
