The World Examines the McDonalds Pull Out from the Crimea for 4-4-14--

PRI's The World - with Host Marco Werman  

Today, hundreds of lives saved.  Next week marks the 20th anniversary of the start of the Rwandan genocide. The BBC's Mark Doyle was there. Today he brings us the incredible story of a Senegalese peacekeeper who managed to save lives as the killings began.

Also today, somber assessments of Afghanistan on the eve of elections. Marco speaks with Afghan-Americans with strong ties to their homeland. And we remember one casualty of the violence, legendary German photojournalist Anja Niedringhaus, gunned down today by a policeman in Khost.

Plus, a new film explores an unsolved 1930s mystery on a tiny island in the Galapagos.

Also, McDonalds makes an abrupt pullout from Crimea.  We'll tell you why.

And writer Aline Simone brings us the story of an American photographer with a singular obsession: Soviet-era bus stops.  He criss-crossed the former Soviet Union, taking pictures of them in all their trippiness.
