Apple on Monday reported a sharp rise in its quarterly profit, lifted by robust sales of its iPhones and a jump in revenue from China. Revenue increased 27 percent from the same period a year ago to $58.01 billion, Apple said. A major contributor was the expansion of iPhone sales in China. Revenue for "greater China" leapt 71 percent to $16.8 billion in the quarter, allowing the region to overtake Europe as Apple's second-largest market.
By Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Baltimore erupted in violence on Monday as hundreds of rioters looted stores, burned buildings and injured at least 15 police officers following the funeral of a 25-year-old black man who died after he was injured in police custody. The riots broke out just a few blocks from the funeral of Freddie Gray and then spread through much of West Baltimore in the most violent U.S. demonstrations since arson and gunfire in Ferguson, Missouri, last year. Firefighters battled several blazes on Monday evening, including a fire under investigation that consumed a church's senior center under construction in East Baltimore. Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, declared a state of emergency and sent in the National Guard.
