"A division of the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) recently organized multiple bombers such as the H-6K to conduct take-off and landing training on islands and reefs in the South China Sea in order to improve our ability to 'reach all territory, conduct strikes at any time and strike in all directions'," it said in the statement issued on Friday.

North Korea on Saturday reiterated its demands for South Korea to send back 12 North Korean restaurant workers who came to the South in 2016, saying such a move would demonstrate Seoul's willingness to improve relations. The statement by North Korea's Red Cross came a week after Seoul said it would look more closely into the circumstances surrounding the women's arrival following a media report that suggested some of them might have been brought to the South against their will. Earlier in the week, North Korea canceled a high-level meeting with the South over U.S.-South Korean military exercises and threatened to call off a planned summit between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and President Donald Trump.

The NRA-funded politician immediately offered standard moral support (but, of course, not solutions) via Twitter after a gunman attacked a Texas high school, killing 10 people. Heidi and I are keeping all the students and faculty at Santa Fe High School in our prayers this morning, along with all first responders on the scene. Cruz may have thought he was doing his duty, but a lot of people let him know his response was sorely lacking (in occasionally foul-mouthed fashion).

President Trump speaks about the high school shooting in Texas from the East Room of the White House, May 18, 2018. Shortly after news broke Friday that a shooting had occurred at a Texas high school, leaving at least eight students dead, the president followed a now familiar routine that he began before he took office, issuing a quick message to the nation via Twitter. Many found the brief tweet jarring, especially as Trump had just issued two tweets attacking the FBI and Democrats over the Russia probe.
The debate is increasingly relevant as Trump’s team seems to be taking an increasingly confrontational approach to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe that may include positing that the president simply cannot be charged with any of the crimes being investigated. Mueller is reportedly zeroing in on a few key issues, including possible obstruction.

By Tom Westbrook KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysians have avidly watched the public humiliation of former leader Najib Razak and his wife, as police hunting evidence of graft loaded five trucks with luxury items, including dozens of Birkin handbags, some costing as much as a sportscar. Tens of thousands of people logged onto Facebook watched as journalists live-streamed the 3 am raid on Friday at an apartment in a fancy condominium, just one of several locations linked to the Najib family that were searched. During his near ten years in power, Najib stamped out political dissent, and stifled criticism in the media.
For the staunch anti-government crowd, the moniker was a perfect fit: Mr Maduro was after all a mere bus driver who through a stroke of luck earned the appointment of his far more astute predecessor. To them the contrast between Hugo Chavez’s charisma and Mr Maduro’s frequent blunders was laughable. As the country continues to suffer through the worst economic crisis in its history, Mr Maduro has successfully outmanoeuvred his opposition, disqualifying its most popular politicians, defeating a months-long bloody protest movement against him and leveraging food handouts to ensure his supporters show up to vote him back in. “We’re going to win, but we have to win with 10 million votes,” a confident Mr Maduro said at a recent rally.

Chilean bishops are arriving back home after their emergency summit with Pope Francis over a sex abuse and cover-up scandal, saying they are committed to helping the pope "clean up" the Chilean church. Bishop Carlos Pellegrin, of Chillan, told reporters at Santiago's airport Friday that in offering to resign en masse, the bishops didn't want to suggest they were "abandoning ship" and leaving the pope alone to deal with their mess. Victims of Chile's most notorious predator priest are reacting with praise and hope after every Chilean bishop offered to resign over a sex abuse and cover-up scandal.
