    (DUBAI, United Arab Emirates) — South Korea’s Kim Jong Yang has been elected as Interpol’s next president, edging out a longtime veteran of Russia’s security services who was strongly opposed by the U.S., Britain and other European nations. The White House and its European partners had lobbied against Alexander Prokopchuk’s attempts to be named the next president of the policing organization, saying his election would lead to further Russian abuses of Interpol’s red notice system to go after political opponents. Prokopchuk is a general in the Russian Interior Ministry and serves as an (...) -- Uncategorized, onetime, overnight, South Korea

    (SANAA, Yemen) — An international aid group says an estimated 85,000 children under age 5 may have died of hunger and disease since the outbreak of Yemen’s civil war in 2015. Save the Children said Wednesday the “conservative” estimate is based on average mortality rates for Severe Acute Malnutrition, which the U.N. says has afflicted more than 1.3 million children since a Saudi-led coalition went to war with Yemen’s Houthi rebels in March 2015. Tamer Kirolos, Save the Children’s Yemen director, says: “For every child killed by bombs and bullets, dozens are starving to death and it’s entirely (...) -- Uncategorized, onetime, overnight, Yemen

Five men reportedly participated in the auction, including high-ranking South Sudanese government officials. “This barbaric use of technology is reminiscent of latter-day slave markets,” George Otim, Country Director of Plan South Sudan, said in a statement. “That a girl could be sold for marriage (...) -- Uncategorized, onetime, overnight, South Sudan

    (SEOUL, South Korea) — South Korea said Wednesday it will dissolve a foundation funded by Japan to compensate South Korean women who were forced to work in Japan’s World War II military brothels. The widely expected decision effectively kills a controversial 2015 agreement to settle a decades-long impasse over the sexual slavery issue and threatens to aggravate a bitter diplomatic feud between the Asian U.S. allies over history. Seoul’s Ministry of Gender Equality and Family said in a statement that it will take legal steps to dissolve the foundation.
