Daily Global Issues Brief - April 13, 2016 (headlines)
Good morning, today's top 5 news on global issues are from Syria, France, Kashmir, Saudi Arabia and Macedonia.
SYRIA: Parliamentary elections in Syria took place today, and while most of the world's governments (excluding Russia, obviously) declared it a sham, many Syrians felt a sense of empowerment, control and personal choice in these otherwise horrid times.
KASHMIR: India has an opportunity - and a responsibility! - to meaningfully address the sexual and gender-based violence so entrenched in its culture - punish the perpetrators. In this case in its army ranks.
