Funeral services for Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland

Family and friends gathered Monday for the funeral of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man whose death in custody triggered a fresh wave of protests over US police tactics.

Thousands of people arrived at the New Shiloh Baptist church to pay final respects to Gray, who died on April 19 of severe spinal injuries, a week after his arrest in Baltimore. (AFP)

There’s no bond like that between a boy and his cat, especially when they’re attending high school prom together. When Sam Steingard of Germantown, MD decided to attend prom without a date his mother asked him to pose for photos with Ruby, the family cat, who was dressed in a pretty pink gown that matched Sam’s bow tie. The adoring look on Ruby’s face says it all.
