    A former Korean-American professor has been detained in North Korea, becoming the third US citizen to be held by the regime since 2016. The man in his late 50s, known only by his surname Kim, was reportedly prevented from leaving the country on Friday when he tried to board a flight at Pyongyang international airport. On Sunday, the US aircraft carrier Carl Vinson began joint exercises with Japan, in another show of force against the North Korean regime, which may be on the brink of a sixth nuclear bomb test.

  • United CEO Munoz no longer to become chairman

    United Airlines said Friday it no longer plans to name chief executive Oscar Munoz chairman as it revised its compensation program following an uproar over its treatment of a passenger.

  • Four gunmen killed in hunt for Philippine militants

    Four gunmen have been killed on a Philippine tourist island as President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the military on Sunday to kill remnants of an Islamic militant group behind a foiled mass kidnapping attempt there. Authorities said the dead suspects and three others on the run were stragglers from a boatload of southern Philippines-based Abu Sayyaf gunmen who sailed to the central island of Bohol this month as part of a plot to kidnap tourists. The raid had signalled an escalation of the kidnapping threat from the Abu Sayyaf, who are based on remote islands and also blamed for beheadings and deadly bombings, prompting Duterte to vow deadly retribution.

  • £70,000 puts workers in the top 5 per cent of UK earners – why are we so reluctant to acknowledge this?

    The response to the suggestion of Labour’s shadow chancellor John McDonnell last week that those earning an annual salary of more than £70,000 makes one rich has prompted similar guffaws. An income of over £70,000 a year will actually put you in the top five per cent of all UK earners. When Ed Miliband proposed a “mansion tax” on properties valued at more than £2m in 2015 right wing newspapers exploded with fury, screaming about how that this would lay waste to middle England.

  • Djokovic should seek Federer's advice, says former mentor

    By Zoran Milosavljevic BELGRADE (Reuters) - A floundering Novak Djokovic should seek advice from evergreen Swiss maestro Roger Federer in order to rediscover his vintage self, the Serb's former Davis Cup coach Bogdan Obradovic said. Djokovic has suffered a spectacular fall from grace since he captured his maiden French Open title last June for his 12th major honour, completing a career slam of winning all four of the world's top tennis tournaments. "Given that Federer was able to return into the top 10 and win this year's Australian Open at the age of 36, I see no reason why Djokovic can't be the world number one again," Obradovic told Belgrade daily Blic on Sunday.
