Baltimore police enforced a curfew for a third night Thursday, as new reports emerged over how the black man at the center of the latest US racial unrest sustained fatal injuries while in police custody.Fresh protests had broken out in Baltimore and Philadelphia earlier over the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray -- the latest household name in the national debate over whether American police are too quick to use violence against blacks, especially young men. As a 10:00 pm curfew began in Baltimore, officers formed a cordon and engaged in a brief but mostly non-violent confrontation with a handful of protesters. On Thursday around 600 people marched in Baltimore, a city of 620,000 an hour's drive from Washington that has witnessed some of its worst unrest in decades.Police and Gray's family have repeatedly appealed for calm and an emergency nighttime curfew, running between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am, remains in place for Baltmore and will continue over the weekend, when large demonstrations are anticipated.
