Kim Jong-un calls K-pop a ‘vicious cancer;’ threatens anyone caught listening to it with 15 yearsin a labour camp

North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un has described the South Korean pop culture, as a 'vicious cancer' corrupting young North Koreans’ “attire, hairstyles, speeches, behaviors.” That has now prompted him to introduced harsher punishments for anyone caught listening to K-pop or watching dramas from the South after his state media warned that if left unchecked, it would make North Korea “crumble like a damp wall.”   The decision comes as South Korean music, television shows, and movies are enjoying unprecedented popularity around the world.

Russian Court Sentences Former US Marine to 16 Years Hard Labour on Disputed Spy Charges

A Russian court sentenced a former American marine on Monday to sixteen years of hard labour on spying charges in Russia.

He was accused of espionage, a charge he denies, and says he was set-up by a Russian security services agent he had believed was a friend. On Monday, just before the verdict was handed, Whelan...

A 42-year-old man, Daniel Kwame Baah, who engaged in incest and impregnated his daughter in the process has been sentenced to 20 years imprisonment by an Accra Circuit Court.
