Today marks the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan Genocide. A ceremony will be held in the capital of Rwanda today to remember the 1994 tragedy when nearly a million civilians were killed in 100 days. President Barack Obama says the anniversary is a reminder to "resist our worst instincts and remember our obligations to our fellow man."

The trial of Oscar Pistorius is expected to resume in South Africa today after a week long adjournment due to a sick court official. Pistorius was expected to take the witness stand for the defense just before the delay but it's now more likely a pathologist will take the stand first today.

Thousands of items from the original Boston Marathon bombing memorial are going on display at the Boston Public Library to mark the upcoming anniversary of the attacks. The collection will include teddy bears, signs, and 150 pairs of shoes from the makeshift memorial that emerged at Copley Square shortly after the bombings.

Weather permitting, Roanoke Police will hold a distracted driving awareness event at Virginia Western Community College this morning from 11 am to 1 pm. Drivers will go through a coned course in a golf cart once for time then drive it again while texting or having other distractions.

 The results of the 24th Annual National Airline Quality Rating will be announced today. They focus on the performance and quality of the 15 largest U.S. airlines.
