According to published media reports, North Korea is offering a bounty of upwards of $10k each for escaped citizens who fled into Russia. Sources tell Radio Free Asia that NK has had a problem with people escaping through Russia as construction workers using student visas rather than working visas. When sanctions hit the country in 2019, people were required to come home but they never did.

A teenage girl fell in love with her stepdad, so she helped him kill her family in Brazil as a result

Several months later it looks like Brazilian police have at least in part solved a heinous double murder. Although previously committed, this is the second major murder story to emerge out of Brazil in weeks. Fabricio Arena was arrested in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, on Monday for the murder of his wife Cristiane Arena and  stepdaughter Karoline Guimarães, 9. The salacious story allegedly involved the fact that the young woman reportedly fell in love with her step father. A love that was apparently so deep that the two conspired together to commit vicious crimes against their own family. Police reports show that the couple first wed in 2015 although Arena allegedly had quite the wandering eye. In case it couldn't get anymore gruesome, the teenage daughter helped pol...

Iran and North Korea are allegedly teaming up making deadly weapons: UN Report

Two unlikely allies are allegedly teaming up together to build deadly nuclear weapons that have now caught the attention of the United Nations. According to a confidential UN report, much of the financial mean(s) used for the wild operation have been stolen from multiple sources and means. One part of the report, per the AP, puts that sum at nearly $316m or more. Bloomberg puts part of the deal(s) through the means of production; assets, and the gathering of critical parts. It is unclear how the two countries are transferring the parts between each other considering North Korea is notoriously closed off from the world.

China has blocked access to Clubhouse amid further tightening of what its citizens can see and talk about

The bitter row between China and its own citizens almost never ceases to accelerate. According to reports and a non-profit organisation, China has reportedly restricted access to the newly minted ("Clubhouse App") that ook the world by storm this year. In some of the chatrooms, Chinese locals were using the app to chat with their neighbors in nearby Taiwan. That feat alone is likely among the biggest reason why the Communist Party blocked the app . It is unclear how long the ban is and whether or not it may be indefinite.

What India may not want you to know about the #FarmersProtest

Why Indian farmers are so angry about the Modi government's agricultural reforms Bhavani Shankar, University of Sheffield India’s farmers have been protesting since the autumn, with a growing intensity that culminated in a violent breaching of barriers in the Red Fort in Delhi during India’s Republic Day celebrations on January 26.

India’s farming population of more than 100 million is comprised largely of small farmers who fear that the reforms will add considerable uncertainty to their already meagre livelihoods. India has historically had a strongly regulated marketing s...

A judge in India has ruled that it is okay to molest children so long as it is through their clothes

EDITORS NOTE: We understand this headline is rather straight forward and offensive but it illustrates the ruling made by India 's Bombay High Court. A female judge has ruled that a man only known as Satish did not commit sexual assault by unlawfully groping a 13-year-old girl's breast before attempting to remove her skirt. A female judge in India this week is finding herself and the high court in a bit of a scruffle. On Tuesday, it emerged of a ruling out of the Bombay High Court involving a man known only by his first name "Satish" who several years ago was accused of sexual assault. In 2016, per documents, Satish was accused of unlawfully groping a 13-year-old girl's breast before attempting to remove her skirt. As illustrated by the reported ruling and a bizarre one at th...

Russian opposition critic Navalny has been detained in Moscow: Reports

Will Russia ever allow space for a Democratic voice? Between a standoff with the Kremlin and the fact Russia allegedly poisoned him -- one would think Navalny would've never turned to Moscow. But on Sunday that was reported to not be the case after Navalny arrived in Moscow from Germany via airplane. According to a spokesperson for Navalny, he willingly returned to Moscow to face an apparent probation violation of some sort dating back to nearly 2014. Navalny has brought a a much larger discussion about life in Russia to the forefront of global discussions. Vladamir Putin, one of the world's most notorious dictators, otherwise would prefer that not to be the case. If the Kremlin had no role in his arrest why was his arrival airport randomly changed by the government? Man...

Report: Air traffic control threat claim’s there’s a terror threat headed for Washington

Air traffic controllers on Monday in New York City found themselves on the receiving end of a domestic terror threat heard over air-traffic control machines. According to reports, a terror threat has been made against the Capital (that's in Washington for readers who aren't hip to America.) The threat claims that a large plane will be flown directly into the Capital tomorrow. As expected it has resulted in the Capital being placed on high alert. CBS reports that it is unclear whether or not the threat is credible, thus, it appears to have come from Iranian nationals seeking revenge for the murder of their top general last year. A digitized voice can be heard in the recording noting revenge will be sought for his death.

An alarming domestic violence story in Canada is a striking reminder why abusive husbands are terrifying

Especially when said abusive husbands have reported ties to organised crime. According to reports in Canada, a Canadian woman thought by winning her divorce battle and the home she shared with her husband — that she could arrange the sale of said home and eventually move on. Thus, instead of an easy transition after a court-ruling in her favour she’s now the victim of an even wider disaster than before. According to police in Calgary-Alberta, Natasha Bourdon ‘s husband whom is incarcerated (Trevor Deitz) ordered a hit on the home after a judge’s ruling in Bourdon ‘s favour. That hit wasn’t just something minor either, uh, reports show that Deitz ordered the home be burnt to the ground whether Natasha was present or not. It appears that Deitz had became sour following the ruling...
