The Huffington Post calls the recent Baltimore riots “the worst outbreak of rioting in Baltimore since 1968.”
The L.A. Times states that at the recent riots, more than 235 people were arrested, including at least 34 juveniles; 15 buildings were set on fire; 144 vehicles were destroyed; about 20 police officers were injured, including one who was hit in the head with an object and remained hospitalized Tuesday.
At least one civilian was in critical condition as a result of a building fire.
Public schools closed Tuesday, keeping nearly 85,000 children out of classes. Schools are to reopen today, Wednesday.
