BALTIMORE (AP) — Rioters looted stores and hurled rocks and bricks at Baltimore police Monday, injuring several officers just hours after thousands mourned the man who died after suffering a severe spinal injury in police custody.
The American mother-in-law of the deceased mastermind of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings described Monday a man obsessed with Islam and politics who insisted she read the Koran. Nurse Judith Russell, whose daughter Katherine converted to Islam after meeting Tamerlan Tsarnaev, told a court in the northeastern US city that no one in the family went to their wedding. Russell was a witness called by defense lawyers battling to save Tamerlan's younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from the death penalty after he was convicted of carrying out the deadly attacks. Tamerlan was shot dead by police four days after the April 15, 2013 attacks while the brothers, of Chechen descent, were on the run.
