Around The Globe: North Korea Fires Missiles Into The Sea, Ex-NOLA Mayor Gets 10-Year Prison Sentence


North Korea is at it again with more missile firings.

This week CNN reported that two short-range missiles were fired of the coast of the Korean Peninsula, heading northeast in the water. At the time North Korea did not declare a no-fly zone, luckily no death or injuries were reported. Their recent launching in the last couple of months has not only caused problems with South Korea, the United States and United Nations, but now Japan. The Japanese Prime minister is looking into the random launch. 

I wonder what North Korea has planned?


Israeli Prime Minister says that the Palestinian militants would “pay a hefty price” for their attack on Israel which left 50 civilians dead, including women and children.

On Wednesday the Hamas fired 82 rockets at Israeli cities after the air strike in Gaza. BBC says Israel targets have been militant fighters and facilities including rocket launchers, weapons store,and command centers. The Hamas says that all Israelis were all targets for violating the Egyptian-Broker truce.

Lets hope this situation can be diffused peacefully without war.

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and was convicted in 20 0f the 21 counts in a bribery scandal.

Last February, a jury found Nagin guilty of thousands of dollars in bribes from businessmen. According to CNN prosecutors say that Nagin was at the center of a kickback scheme receiving checks, cash, wire transfers, personal services and free travel from businessmen wanting contracts and special treatment from the city. 

Judge Helen G. Berrigan ordered Nagin to pay $84,264 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
