An American winning the Boston Marathon, the rising death toll from the capsized South Korean ferry and General Motors' slim profit margin all made headlines this week.

(RNN) - Monday was the Boston Marathon, and thousands came out to run and watch the race a year after the 2013 marathon bombings.

Meb Keflezighi became the first American man to win the Boston Marathon since 1983.

Rescuers continued to recover the bodies of victims from the sunken ferry off the coast of South Korea. More than 180 passengers have died after the ferry capsized last week. Several crew members were arrested for abandoning the passengers.
