BALTIMORE (AP) - The first night of a curfew has given way to morning rush hour traffic in Baltimore after a quiet night.

Schools are also open today in the city that had been gripped by rioting after the funeral of a black man who died after an arrest. School officials say students who participated in the riots, will be held accountable. No fans will be allowed to attend a major league baseball game that will be played in an empty stadium.

A 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew was obeyed following rioting yesterday over the case of Freddie Gray.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts told a news conference shortly before midnight that about 10 people had been arrested, including seven for violating the curfew. He said two people were arrested for looting and one for disorderly conduct.

About 3,000 police and National Guard troops enforced the overnight curfew which will continue for several days.
