World Watch: Nuptials

* Britain: An estimated global television audience of two billion people watched Friday’s British royal wedding between Prince William and his longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton.

* China: Could the “one-child” policy be relaxed after census figures showed that the Chinese elderly population is growing?

* Morocco: Al-Qaeda may’ve been behind the bombing of a café in Marrakech that killed at least sixteen people.

* Syria: Approximately 62 people were killed in another day of unrest in numerous Syrian cites.
