    Satellite imagery suggests recent flooding in North Korea may have damaged pump houses connected to the country's main nuclear facility, a U.S.-based think-tank said on Thursday. Analysts at 38 North, a website that monitors North Korea, said commercial satellite imagery from August 6-11 showed how vulnerable the Yongbyon Nuclear Scientific Research Center's nuclear reactor cooling systems are to extreme weather events. The Korean peninsula has been hammered by one of the longest rainy spells in recent history, with floods and landslides causing damage and deaths in both North and South Korea.

The Iranian navy held the vessel for some five hours before releasing it Wednesday, said a U.S. military official who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss details not yet made public.

  • Taiwan says discussing purchase of U.S. mines, cruise missiles
    August 12, 2020, 10:00 am

    Taiwan is in discussions with the United States on acquiring underwater sea mines to deter amphibious landings as well as cruise missiles for coastal defense, Taiwan's de facto ambassador to United States said on Wednesday. Speaking to the Washington's Hudson Institute think tank, Hsiao Bi-khim said Taiwan was facing "an existential survival issue," given China's territorial and sovereignty claims over the island and needed to expand its asymmetric capabilities. Hsiao said Taipei was currently working with the United States on acquiring a number of hardware capabilities, including cruise missiles that would work in conjunction with Taiwan's indigenous Hsiung Feng missile system to provide better coastal defense.

  • Pro Poker Player Was Bound, Sexually Assaulted, ?Lit on Fire? After Motel Mee...
    August 12, 2020, 9:29 am

    Susie Zhao, the professional poker player whose charred remains were found in a remote Michigan park in July, was allegedly bound with zip ties and sexually assaulted before she was ?lit on fire until she died? after meeting with a convicted sex offender, according to new court documents.Zhao, 33, was last seen around 5:30 p.m. on July 12 by her mother, the White Lake Township Police Department previously told The Daily Beast. The next day, her ?badly burned? body was discovered at around 8:05 a.m. in a parking lot near the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area, about an hour outside of Detroit.Last week, Jeffrey Bernard Morris, 60, was charged from his hospital bed with first-degree premeditated murder. Authorities discovered the convicted sex offender allegedly met Zhao in a motel room the night before her body was found. Morris, who is homeless and has a ?lengthy criminal history? is currently in jail after being denied bail.A Pro Poker Player Was Found ?Badly Burned.? Was She Murdered Over Gambling??This is not the end of the investigation into Susie?s death but the beginning of the pursuit of justice for her and her family,? White Lake Township Detective Chris Hild said in a press conference. ?We can only hope that where we are today brings some level of comfort to the healing process.?In new court documents, first obtained by WXYZ, authorities revealed what occurred the night the pro poker player, known on the circuit as ?Susie Q,? went missing.Cell phone records indicate Morris and the rising poker star first met on July 12. In an interview with police the night of his arrest on July 31, Morris admitted to picking up Zhao on Watkins Lake Road before they both checked into the Sherwood Motel at around 9:26 p.m.Morris told investigators the pair left the motel at some point to buy some alcohol and that Zhao left the motel at around midnight and took everything with her. Cell phone records, however, show the 33-year-old?s phone didn?t leave the motel until around 5 a.m on July 13, according to the court documents. Surveillance footage near the motel and cell phone records also show Morris left the room at around 5 a.m., before driving to a secluded section of the Pontiac Lake Recreation area?where Zhao was found.Court documents say that evidence suggests Morris was at the 3,745-acre park for about seven minutes.When Zhao was found the following morning, she was identified by fingerprints and was bound with zip ties. She had been sexually assaulted with a large object before being "lit on fire until she died,? the court documents state.A spokesperson for the Oakland County Medical Examiner told The Daily Beast that Zhao?s cause of death is currently unknown, pending an autopsy and toxicology results.When authorities pulled Morris over on a warrant in Ypsilanti weeks later, investigators found several hairs and other evidence with possible bloodstains. They also found duffle bags with a fitted bed sheet that appeared to have blood on it and a wooden baseball bat that also appeared to have a bloodstain. The items were taken to Oakland County Crime Lab for testing.Authorities are now scrambling to understand the motive behind the ?mysterious death? that occurred just weeks after Zhao moved back to her home state of Michigan from California on June 9.Two childhood friends of Zhao previously told The Daily Beast that the poker player bounced between several cities?including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Florida?both for her job and because she was ?a jet-setter.?According to PokerNews.com, Zhao was successful in the professional worker world, garnering several deep runs in the World Series of Poker Main Event?placing 90th in 2012 to earn $73,805. Over the course of her career, Zhao won $224,671, according to the poker database The Hendon Mob. Despite earlier speculation, authorities have said there is no evidence that Zhao?s death was connected to her gambling.?I don?t think there was ever anything else that she wanted to do. She was playing poker from a very young age,? Meredith Rogowski, a childhood friend, told The Daily Beast. ?It was not a surprise. She was very bold and did whatever she wanted to do. Whenever we talked about her job, she was very nonchalant. But I do know it was exhausting to be in that world?it was long hours and some of the people she met weren?t always genuine.?Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
