North Korea 'detains American citizen'

North Korea 'detains American citizen'

An American citizen has been detained in North Korea as he tried to leave the country, South Korean media say.
The man was identified only by his surname, Kim.
He becomes the third American to be detained by the North; one has been sentenced for spying, the other for trying to steal a sign from a hotel.
The latest detention comes amid high tension on the peninsula, with the US warning its "strategic patience" on the North's nuclear programme is over.
A US naval battle group headed by an aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, and described by President Donald Trump as an "armada", is expected to reach the Korean peninsula later in the week.
The South Korean news agency Yonhap said the detained American citizen, in his 50s, was a former professor from Yanbian University in China and had been in North Korea for a month in connection with relief programmes.

Is the GFF-KM football stand-off a political witch hunt?

Is the GFF-KM football stand-off a political witch hunt?

By Fallaboweh
The KM 3rd Division has just played 2 games when GFF abruptly. The football federation has sighted to interfere with the KM 3rd division administration. A 16 team league was extended to 17 were the KM accommodated one slot from Bakau which doesn't go well with the Bakau committe who in return reported the matter to the federation.

The first stand-off from the federation gave the referee association notice not to referee any KM match in retaliation to that the KM executive stopped the Gamtel vs Samger match at the serrekunda east stadium because the fields belong to them. Its a pity that the GFF executives haven't learned from the letter which LRRFA reminded them regional constitution belong to the region and therefore should not subject to any dictations.
