Rescuers have pulled a 101-year-old man alive from his ruined home a week after Nepal's earthquake claimed at least 7,200 lives, as the government warned Sunday the death toll will climb "much higher". His condition is stable," police officer Arun Kumar Singh told AFP from Nuwakot district, around 80 kilometres (50 miles) northwest of Kathmandu. Nepal's National Emergency Operation Centre, part of the Ministry of Home Affairs, tweeted that a 101-year-old was rescued in Nuwakot's Kimtang village. Finance Minister Ram Sharan Mahat said the death toll was likely to jump once relief teams reach mountain villages flattened in the worst quake to hit the nation in more than 80 years.
By Scott Malone and Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - The mayor of Baltimore on Sunday lifted a night curfew imposed on the city last week after a spate of looting and arson that followed the funeral of a young black man who died from injuries suffered while in the police custody. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she believed sufficient calm had returned to allow her to end the 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew, which went into effect last Tuesday after protests over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray turned violent on Monday. "I believe we have reached that point today." Speaking in front of a mall that was looted on Monday, the mayor also said the Maryland National Guard would begin withdrawing from the streets over the next week. As of Saturday, there were about 2,600 troops helping law enforcement officers patrol the city and enforce the curfew, the guard said.
