Protests slow in New York after funeral for slain black man

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Mourners in New York held a funeral on a rain-soaked Saturday for a black man shot dead by a white patrol officer in a dimly lit stairwell, but streets were mostly quiet after three nights of demonstrations against police violence.

The shooting of Akai Gurley, 28, at a public housing project last month was the latest in a series of killings that have outraged protesters who see a pattern of excessive force being used by law enforcement against African-Americans.

Dollar surges on strong U.S. jobs report, more room to rise

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. dollar surged to fresh multiyear highs on Friday after a stronger-than-expected November U.S. jobs report increased expectations the Federal Reserve would begin raising interest rates sooner than currently expected.

Employment grew at its fastest pace in nearly three years in November and wages rose, the latest U.S. employment report showed. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 321,000, better than forecasts for an increase of 230,000.
