SEOUL, April 29 (UPI) -- Gift bags of candy that Kim Jong Un issued for North Korean children on Kim Il Sung's birthday anniversary are being spurned for better quality Chinese sweets, sources say. The North Korean candy is of such poor quality an excess supply of the confections are being sold in the country's gray markets at marked-down prices, Radio Free Asia reported. A source in North Hamgyong Province said the gift bag for children is being "trafficked" in the unofficial marketplace, and the authorities are not happy with the situation. "Trading in 'Day of the Sun' gifts from the state is illegal, and law enforcement had to take action," the source said, according to South Korean news service
British pop artist Lily Allen is known for her fashion-forward looks, but the "Hard Out Here" singer took things a bit too far when she performed at a children's charity event in a sheer top.

A man has come up with an ingenius way of stopping a police speed camera from catching drivers in the act - parking his car behind it, and blocking it with his open boot.

CINCINNATI - Restaurateur Jeff Ruby has withdrawn his $25,000 reward in the slayings of eight family members in Ohio because of the “recent complex criminal developments” surrounding the case, according to a tweet he made Thursday. Ruby told The Enquirer his advisers have asked him not to talk publicly about his decision and he declined comment. The restaurateur had made the reward offer on Saturday, one day after eight bodies were discovered at four locations in Pike County.

Airstrikes hit a hospital in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, Syria, and killed at least 27 people, including three children and the city’s last pediatrician, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Thursday. The al-Quds hospital was supported by international medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières, or Doctors Without Borders, which said the hospital was destroyed after being hit by a direct airstrike that killed at least three doctors. The head of a rescue service put the death toll at 50, saying most of the dead were in a building next door.

A cessation of hostilities agreement has unraveled and fighting has resumed on numerous fronts in western Syria. (Reuters) Find more news-related photo galleries on the Yahoo News Photo Tumblr!
A pilot told FoxNews.com that two days after two Florida teenage fishermen disappeared at sea last summer, he may have spotted one of them desperately signaling for help on a makeshift raft off the coast of Georgia. Bobby Smith, 63, believes he saw either Austin Stephanos or Perry Cohen with hands raised when his Piper Warrior flew over debris east of St. Marys, Ga., on July 26. “No doubt about it,” Smith told FoxNews.com Friday. “There was a small person lying on that debris.” He described it as two large pieces of Styrofoam lashed together with a bright-colored life vest. Smith told investigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission what he saw during his search for the
When American companies began switching from traditional pensions to self-directed 401(k)-like plans in the 1980s and 1990s, it was supposed to lead to a golden age of retirement security. No longer would workers be at the mercy of the company’s generosity or of Social Security’s solvency; workers themselves would be responsible for saving enough for a comfortable retirement. Some 30 years later, the results are in: The median working-age couple has saved only $5,000 for their retirement, according to an analysis of the Federal Reserve’s 2013 Survey of Consumer Finances by economist Monique Morrissey of the Economic Policy Institute. The do-it-yourself pension system is a disaster. Even as the
