Hard Numbers

17: South Korean officials estimate their country is targeted by 1.5 million North Korean hacking attempts per day. That’s about 17 every second. Think a “peace agreement” will put a stop to that?

375: One reason Merkel and Macron want to persuade Trump not to shred the Iran nuclear deal: European companies are now active in Iran, and Iran’s exports to the EU surged by 375 percent in the first year following conclusion of the agreement in July 2015.

1,186: The U.S.-led coalition dropped 1,186 bombs in Afghanistan in the first three months of this year, a record high for the first quarter of any year since 2003.
