Militiamen loyal to Yemen's fugitive President Abderabbo Mansour Hadi help an injured comrade during reported clashes with Huthi rebels in Aden's Dar Saad suburb on April 25, 2015Fierce fighting raged Saturday in south Yemen between Iran-backed rebels and loyalists of exiled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi, as pressure mounted for the warring factions to hold political talks. The Huthi rebels, who have overrun large parts of the country and forced Hadi to flee overseas, have demanded a complete end to a month of Saudi-led air strikes against them as a condition for UN-sponsored talks. Sources said on Saturday that clashes had left at least 90 people dead in towns in the south of the impoverished country, strategically located next to oil-rich Saudi Arabia and key shipping routes. Former strongman Ali Abdullah Saleh, who still holds sway over army units allied with the Shiite rebels, late Friday urged the Huthis to heed UN demands to withdraw from territory they have seized.

Heaven Taylor, 54, holds a sign outside City Hall before a protest in honor of Freddie Gray April 25, 2015 in Baltimore, MarylandProtesters returned to Baltimore's streets Saturday to vent their outrage over the death of an African-American man from injuries he apparently sustained when he was taken into custody two weekends ago. Organizers anticipated the biggest outpouring of public anger since Freddie Gray, 25, was arrested on April 12, only to die in a coma seven days later from severe spinal injuries. Some 200 to 300 protesters set off in the early afternoon from the west Baltimore housing project where Gray was apprehended, heading toward the district police station that has been the focal point of nightly demonstrations this week. "No justice, no peace!" chanted the crowd, under a forest of banners, including one featuring portraits of 50-odd African-Americans who have died in confrontations with police officers in recent years.
