By Shannon Stapleton BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Mourners gathered at a Baltimore funeral home on Sunday to remember a 25-year-old black man who died a week ago while in police custody, an unexplained death that brought thousands to the city's downtown to protest police violence. The wake for Freddie Gray on Sunday afternoon came the day after the largest demonstration yet since he died on April 19 and two weeks after a foot chase with patrol officers, his eventual arrest and his ride in a police transport van. Anthony Batts, the city's police commissioner, said on Friday that officers who detained Gray failed to give him timely medical attention for a spinal injury he suffered while in custody. The head of the Baltimore police union said this assertion was premature and apparently "politically driven." Gray joined a growing number of black men who have died under questionable circumstances during police encounters in recent months.

In a story April 26 about a gathering of earthquakes experts a week before the Nepal quake, The Associated Press reported erroneously the name of one expert. His name is Hari Kumar, not Hari Ghi.
