Chinese President Xi Jinping is removing presidential term limits. Is this for better leadership, as the pro-communist paper Global Times says, or is it an ominous sign of things to come?

In the US, Parkland students return to their high school, nearly a fortnight after the shooting. It's an emotional trip, as the New York Times reports. Also, the New York Post looks at Dana Loesch, the new face of the NRA.

Sridevi, Bollywood's first female superstar, has passed away at the age of 54. For many, she was a feminist trailblazer in India.
