U.S. sanctions 13 Chinese and North Korean organisations

North Korea will be designated a ‘state sponsor of terrorism’ again

A South Korean hospital says a North Korean soldier who was shot by his comrades while fleeing to the South has regained consciousness and is enjoying American movies and South Korean pop songs on television.

Four North Korean soldiers, weapons in their hands, race by the blue huts that straddle the line and are familiar to anyone who has toured the only spot on the border where North and South Korean soldiers face off within spitting distance of each other. The defector falls stretched out and unmoving in a pile of leaves against a small wall on the South Korean side.

The soldier was shot several times by fellow North Korean soldiers as he fled across the border to South Korea on November 13.

There was no immediate reaction from North Korea, but an editorial in the ruling party newspaper Rodong Sinmun ahead of the announcement described Trump as a "mentally deranged money-grabber" who was leading the USA down an "irretrievable road to hell".

CCTV released by United Nation Command shows the man racing a military jeep into the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom, where soldiers from the South and North watch each other just metres apart.

Gen. Vincent Brooks, the commander of U.S. Forces in Korea and the head of U.N. Command, said the service members on the southern side "took appropriate actions" during the incident to de-escalate tensions and prevent anyone being killed. Though the agreement resulted in ceasefire, the two countries are technically still at war, and South Korea has accused the North of violating the agreement numerous times over the years.

Model Gigi Hadid pulls out of Victoria's Secret China show
Victoria's Secret veteran Adriana Lima's visa has allegedly been held up due to an ongoing "diplomatic problem". In the video , Gigi is shown squinting her eyes while holding a Buddha, which was seen as extremely offensive.

Surprisingly, North and South Korean soldiers didn't exchange fire during the shooting, the first in the area in more than three decades.

North Korean soldiers from the adjacent guard tower ran towards the jeep to respond and the defector quickly got out of the vehicle and ran south across the MDL. Guarded by mines, barbed wire fences, tank traps and combat troops on both sides, the DMZ is the world's most heavily fortified border.

"We've turned on the TV for him since yesterday", doctor Lee Cook-jong told reporters.

About 30,000 North Koreans have fled to South Korea, mostly across the porous border with China, since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

"The [Korean People's Army] violated the armistice agreement by one, firing weapons across the MDL, and two, and by actually crossing the MDL", a spokesman said during a news conference Tuesday.

"Patient requires intensive care, detailed tests and observation as there is a chance his condition may worsen due to infections of his bullet wounds", the hospital said in a statement.
