UN demands North Korea stop missile tests
The United Nations on Monday called on North Korea to put a stop to its ballistic missile tests following the latest launch at the weekend. “These actions threaten regional and international security,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. “We call on the DPRK to stop further testing and allow space to explore the resumption of meaningful dialogue.” The Security Council will hold a closed-door emergency meeting on Tuesday at the request of the United States, Japan and...

The curious timing of the China spy killing story
The New York Times’ page-one splash on Sunday reads like a spy novel by John Le Carre – except it was all real. Moles were planted by the CIA deep within the Chinese government; a ruthlessly efficient counter-intelligence operation by mainland spymasters exposed the whole spying network; and desperate and ultimately fruitless attempts were made by the Americans to alert and save those spies, up to 20 of whom were either executed or jailed. I am not going to wrap myself around the...

Jet owned by Elvis Presley to be sold at auction
A private jet once owned by Elvis Presley is set to be auctioned after sitting on a runway in New Mexico for 30 years. Elvis designed the interior that has gold-tonne woodwork, red velvet seats and red shag carpet. But the red 1962 Lockheed Jetstar has no engine and needs a restoration of its cockpit. Liveauctioneers.com says the 1962 red Lockheed JetStar was owned by Elvis and his father, Vernon Presley. It has been privately owned for 35 years and sitting on a tarmac in Roswell, New Mexico....

China plans new science station in Antarctica
China has pledged to further ­expand its presence in Antarctica, including building its fifth ­research station on the largely ­uninhabited continent.

Brazilian President Michel Temer concedes he was ‘naive’ but remains defiant despite pressure to resign
Brazilian President Michel Temer said on Monday that he’d been “naive” to hold the late-night meeting which sparked an explosive corruption scandal, but insisted he’d done nothing wrong and wouldn’t resign. Temer, who faces multiple impeachment demands, told Folha newspaper he had innocently stumbled into the crisis threatening to bring him down just over a year since he replaced impeached president Dilma Rousseff. “Naivety. I was naive,” he said. The...

British towns that were once Labour strongholds appear destined to flip in favour of Theresa May’s Conservatives
In 1980, David Cottrell was among 10,000 steel workers who lost their jobs under Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher when the nationalised British Steel closed its plant in Shotton, northeast Wales. Now, 37 years later, Cottrell is 62 and owns the Creature Comforts pet shop in nearby ­Connah’s Quay. Despite the massive job losses in the area under Thatcher, it’s the Tories to whom the former Labour voter is turning this time around to safeguard the local economy....

Opinion: North Korea is addicted to missiles – if intervention fails, it’s war
With every missile launch, the risk of an armed conflict in North Korea rises a notch – and so it is with Pyongyang’s confirmation that it “successfully” launched another medium-range ballistic missile on Sunday. The weapon is now ready for military action, according to the state-run KCNA news agency, whose announcement seems to taunt the UN Security Council, which only last Monday warned North Korea to conduct no further missile tests. That demand itself followed a test...
