2: North Korea fired two "unidentified projectiles" into waters between Japan and South Korea on Thursday. If confirmed as a ballistic missile test, it would be Pyongyang's 12th since May, and the first since negotiations between the US and North Korea broke down last month.

475,000: In the fiscal year to September, US Border Patrol arrested some 475,000 people trying to enter the US without papers as families, up 342 percent from the same period in 2018. Of those apprehended, 76,020 were minors, that's more than during any other period on record.
