First lady Michelle Obama answers questions during the White House's annual "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,"  Thursday, April 24, 2014, in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Michelle Obama is rearranging plans for a speech before graduating high school seniors in Topeka, Kansas, in the face of protests that her appearance at a combined graduation ceremony for five schools would limit seating for families and friends. She had accepted the district’s invitation to speak May 17 at the combined ceremony to mark that day’s 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, outlawing school segregation. The case originated in Topeka. (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)

In this image taken from video people travel on the road near Bentiu South Sudan on Sunday April 20, 2014. U.N.'s top humanitarian official in south Sudan Toby Lanzer  told The Associated Press in a phone interview Tuesday April 23, 2014, that the ethnically targeted killings are "quite possibly a game-changer" for a conflict that has been raging since mid-December and that has exposed longstanding ethnic hostilities. There was also a disturbing echo of Rwanda, which is marking the 20th anniversary this month of its genocide that killed 1 million people. "It's the first time we're aware of that a local radio station was broadcasting hate messages encouraging people to engage in atrocities," said Lanzer, who was in Bentiu on Sunday and Monday. "And that really accelerates South Sudan's descent into an even more difficult situation from which it needs to extract itself." (AP Photo/Toby Lanzer, United Nations)
