SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Thursday that his country had achieved the "success of all successes" in launching a missile from a submarine, saying it effectively gave the country a fully equipped nuclear attack capability and put the U.S. mainland within striking distance.
Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's first woman president, Dilma Rousseff, faced the final act of an impeachment battle Thursday likely to see the suspended leader of Latin America's biggest economy sacked within days. A Senate trial starting at 9:00 am (1200 GMT)was considered almost sure to result in Rousseff, 68, being found guilty of cooking the budget books to mask the depth of economic problems during her 2014 reelection campaign. If she is removed from office, her former vice president turned rival Michel Temer will be sworn in to serve until 2018, shifting Brazil to the right after 13 years of leftist rule under Rousseff's Workers' Party.
