    Multiple protests broke out in various U.S. cities in response to the Baltimore protests. This included Ferguson, Missouri, the site of the death of Michael Brown over the summer, where two people were shot during protests. A prominent protest also broke out in New York City, where sixty people were arrested in connection to the protests. Those arrested allegedly got hostile with police, who were trying to control the flow of people which were taking up entire streets in Manhattan. Similar protests broke out in several other major cities, including Denver and Boston.

    A 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal on Saturday, which is feared to have caused upwards of 5,000 deaths. The quake decimated most of the mountainous nation, with an estimated 90 percent of the countries housing affected, and at least a quarter of Nepal's population having been impacted by the quake. The disaster also had effects on several other nations and areas in the region, with shock waves felt in bordering countries India and Bangladesh, along with an avalanche that killed several on Mount Everest. At least half a million people have lost their homes in Nepal alone, as aid from overseas nations attempt to provide support for the nation.
