Pictures of former North Korean leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il decorate April 25 House of Culture, the venue of Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) congress in PyongyangBy James Pearson PYONGYANG (Reuters) - North Korea kicked off the first congress of its ruling Workers' Party in 36 years on Friday, with Kim Jong Un expected to further consolidate his control over a country that has grown increasingly isolated over its pursuit of nuclear weapons. Ahead of the event, secretive North Korea trumpeted "miraculous results" and said advances in nuclear and ballistic missile developments were "the greatest gifts" for the rare party congress, but little of substance was revealed. Thousands of delegates from around North Korea were expected to attend the first congress since 1980, before 33-year-old Kim was born.

Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky leaves after his appeal hearing at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, PennsylvaniaBy David DeKok HARRISBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - Penn State's revered former head coach Joe Paterno was told of child sexual abuse by convicted molester Jerry Sandusky as far back as 1976, decades before previously thought, but did not report it to higher authorities, a court document showed. Paterno, the coach with the most wins in major college football history, died in 2012 after being fired over revelations that Sandusky, his coaching assistant, sexually abused a young boy in the Penn State football showers in 2002. Paterno told university officials, but not police.
