North Koreans bearing gifts? – What kind of present will North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un leave under the tree for President Trump this year? US spooks are worried it could be a missile test: Talks over the North's nuclear arsenal have stalled since a summit between the two leaders broke down in February, leaving Pyongyang chafing under US sanctions. Testing a new ICBM that could reach the US would be one way for Kim to get Trump's attention, but it might provoke the US to seek even tighter financial curbs against the North. China, South Korea, and Japan have engaged in a flurry of diplomacy in recent days to try to tamp down rising tensions.
11,000 – In recent years, at least 11,000 Uighurs fleeing persecution in China have taken refuge in Turkey. The Uighurs are a Turkic ethnic group, whose plight Turkish President Erdogan has spoken out about. But as Ankara draws closer to China, Turkey has begun deporting some of them back to their homeland.
