Africa

Freed schoolgirls meet with families and president - After over 100 Nigerian schoolgirls were freed from Boko Haram, they visited with their parents and then flew to the country’s capital to meet with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. They were originally kidnapped from their boarding school on Feb. 19, and Boko Haram warned them to not return to school.

Asia

Dalai Lama won’t travel this year The Dalai Lama is 82-years-old and his spokesman said he will not do any more traveling this year because he is “exhausted.” His spokesman said his health is fine, but aging is taking a toll on him. Last year the Dalai Lama went to eight foreign cities for public events, and he traveled to 16 others in 2016.

Europe

Russia diplomats being expelled After the poisoning and death of Sergei Skripal, a double agent for the United Kingdom’s intelligence services, Russian diplomats are being rapidly expelled in the United States, Canada, and European countries like Germany, France and Ukraine. The European Union said it was highly likely that Russia was responsible for the Skripal’s death, but the country has denied all allegations.

Fire at mall in Siberia kills dozens - A fire in Siberia at a shopping and entertainment mall killed at least 64 people, and Russia’s Investigative Committee said there were “serious violations” like blocked exits at the mall.

Venezuela mourns Maestro Abreu Venezuela has announced three days of national mourning after the death of Jose Abreu, founder of EL Sistema, a program that provided free music education to Venezuelans in poor neighborhoods. The program started in a garage with just 11 people, but it eventually inspired other similar ones in other countries. Abreu passed away at the age of 78 and was known as “Maestro Abreu.”

Statues returned to Mexico - In 2015 a court ruled that two 3,000-year-old pre-Hispanic wooden statues from the Olmec civilization belonged to Mexico, and now they have been returned from Germany. The artifacts were taken from art collector Leonardo Patterson, and he was found guilty of dealing in fakes and for possessing looted artefacts in 2015.

North America

Gun manufacturer files for bankruptcy - Remington Outdoor is the oldest gun manufacturer in America and it was founded over 200 years ago, but now the manufacturer has filed for bankruptcy as sales drop. One of its rifles was used during the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, and the manufacturer was sued from victims’ family members. While it has filed for bankruptcy, Remington Outdoor will stay in business.

March For Our Lives draws thousands - Nearly 200,000 people took to the streets in Washington DC for the “March For Our Lives” protest to show support for gun control. Thousands of people crowded into Civic Center Park near the state Capitol to also show support for gun control in Colorado. Speakers included relatives of people who were killed in the Columbine High School shooting and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Maddie King.
