    Escape from North Korea: video shows defector under fire

    A North Korean border guard briefly crossed the border with the South in the chase for a defector last week - a violation of the ceasefire accord between North and South, a video released on Wednesday by the U.N. Command (UNC) in Seoul showed. The North Koreans were only steps behind the young man when they shot him at least four times as he made his escape on Nov. 13. The video, filmed as the defector drove an army truck through the demilitarized zone and then abandoned the vehicle, gives a dramatic insight into his escape.

    Bounty offered for head of Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone

    The release of a Bollywood film has been put on hold after a $1.5m (£1.1m) bounty was offered to anyone who beheads lead actress Deepika Padukone and the film’s director. Suraj Pal Amu, a member of India's Hindu nationalist ruling party, made the call against the actress, who previously starred alongside Vin Diesel in the xXx franchise, ahead of her latest project Padmavati over its alleged portrayal of a relationship between a Hindu queen and a Muslim conqueror. According to local media reports, the party member, a leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Haryana, declared that the film would not be allowed to release at all after it was scheduled to open to audiences on 1 December.

    Japan special panel to weigh timing of emperor's abdication

    The timing of Emperor Akihito's abdication, Japan's first in nearly two centuries, is to be discussed by a special panel that will meet from Dec. 1, the top government spokesman said on Wednesday. Akihito, who turns 84 on Dec. 23 and has had heart surgery and treatment for prostate cancer, said in rare remarks last year that he feared age might make it hard to fulfil his duties. A law adopted in June that allows him to step down and be succeeded by Crown Prince Naruhito, 57, left details, such as timing, to be worked out.

    Las Vegas Strip Could Close to Cars After Stephen Paddock Shooting

    The Las Vegas Strip could shut down to vehicles after a mass shooting killed 58 people attending an outdoor concert if one local lawmaker has her way. Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani said Nevada officials should consider outlawing cruising along the glittering strip after the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history. The 4.2-mile strip is a popular cruising destination, with out-of-state visitors driving in from Arizona, California and other states to motor down Las Vegas Boulevard and witness the throngs of tourists, shining casinos and unique architecture. "Part of what happened is I heard from individuals that it was so crowded, that it was difficult for our emergency vehicles to get up and down." she said.
