Secretive North Korea trumpeted "miraculous results" ahead of the event and said advances in nuclear and ballistic missile developments, made in defiance of U.N. sanctions, were "the greatest gifts" for the rare party congress, but little of substance was revealed. North Korean state media mentioned that congress would open on Friday but did not carry details of proceedings as of early evening.

Last week, billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn said in an interview with cable television network CNBC that he had sold his entire stake in Apple, citing China's economic slowdown and worries about whether the government could make it very difficult for Apple to conduct business.
