World Links: Obama in Iraq, Rwandans Mark 15th Anniversary of Genocide

President Obama makes a surprise visit to Iraq at the end of his week-long European tour.

Before heading to Iraq, Obama spent two days in Turkey, where he addressed the Turkish Parliament and met with Turkish university students.

The toll climbs to 207 dead, 15 missing, and 17,000 left homeless after yesterday’s earthquake in L’Aquila, Italy, 60 miles outside of Rome.

Rwandans mark the 15th anniversary of the genocide in which nearly one million died, mostly minority Tutsis killed by majority Hutus.
