News in Review A Look Back at International News 2013

Touching on just a few of the memorable stories that made the international news in 2013, we start with a shocking bomb attack at the Boston marathon that ended in a gripping four-day manhunt. Then there is the epic story of a man who has so far eluded capture, Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor who has accused the U.S. of spying on its own people. In late spring, the international community loudly condemned the Syrian government for its use of chemical weapons against civilians. Americans marked an important milestone in their internal struggles for racial equality, with the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King's unforgettable "I Have a Dream" speech. And Canadians and the literary community around the world celebrated when Alice Munro, an unassuming author from small-town Canada, won the world's biggest prize for literature.
