April 1-30, 2018 -- The World Agenda gives a preview of world events scheduled for April.

Apr 1, UK: Britain’s Royal Air Force, the world’s oldest independent air force, celebrates its centenary. Formed as a response to repeated German air raids during World War I, the RAF contributed to the Allied victory in November 1918

Apr 4, U.S.: With tensions again running high over racial injustice, national commemorations mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of iconic civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Apr 19, Cuba: Raúl Castro steps down as president, almost six decades after his late brother Fidel Castro came to power. Raúl’s likely successor, Vice-President Miguel Díaz-Canel (above) must build on the unfinished task of reforming the economy, Cuba’s most urgent challenge
