North Korea will fire a missile on US election day, reports claim, in apparent show of strength as Americans go to the polls.
It is feared the state will launch a Masudan or BM-35 rocket, Yonhap news agency reported, which has the capability to reach targets in the Pacific, including the US territory of Guam.
If true it would follow a succession of missile tests carried out by the totalitarian state that have taken place despite sanctions being placed on the country.
South Korean military have reportedly been put on high alert while the threat remains.
According to the Mail Online, a South Korean official said they are ‘closely watching every move by the North Korean military at its Punggye-ri nuclear test site and other possible missile-launching sites’.
‘The military is fully prepared to respond to any provocative acts by the North,’ the official added.
A military spokesman added: ‘All military and security matters, including the deployment of an advanced missile defence system known as Thaad, will be pushed forward as planned regardless of the scandal.’
Hotel guests were oblivious for days that there was a corpse wrapped up in plastic underneath their bed.
Police in Mexico City believe the woman’s body had been there for at least a week when it was discovered at Hotel El Senador. The foul smell eventually led staff to look under the bed and make the gruesome discovery.
Staff said that after the last guest checked out, they had noticed a strange smell coming from under the bed, and decided to lift it to see what it was.
It was then that the staff at the guest spot, which is located in Doctores Neighbourhood, one of the capital’s picturesque areas, just south-west of the historic city centre, discovered the plastic wrapped female corpse.
Four men who gang-raped a woman in front of her husband and daughter, has been disgraced after a Saudi Arabian court ordered that the four men be given 7,000 lashes and 52 years in prison for the horrible offense.
Dailymail gathered that Jeddah court determined that one of the accused will be given 2,500 lashes in 50 sessions and will be jailed for 17 years while two of his accomplices will be given 1,500 lashes each and were jailed for 15 years.
On the other hand, the fourth accused was sentenced to only five years in prison with 1,500 lashes.
Explaining how the incident happened, police officials said that the accused broke into the victim’s home in Jeddah, tied up her husband with an electric wire and attacked the woman. They stripped her in front of her husband and their young daughter and r*ped her.
Then, they went ahead to steal 10,000 riyals and eight mobile phones before fleeing – only to return after sometime and rape the woman again at knifepoint.
After the incident, the victims complained to authorities. People had demanded that the suspects be executed instead of being granted a prison sentence because of the severity of the case.
Saudi Arabia, a leading Arab ally of the United States and the birthplace of Islam, follows the strict Wahhabi Sunni Muslim school and gives the clergy control over its justice system.
Photographs on social media showed the sinkhole forming in front of the main railway station in the south-western city of Fukuoka shortly after 5am. By mid-morning an entire section of a main road had caved in and the 20 metre-wide hole had started to fill with water.
The road’s sudden collapse caused power cuts and gas leaks. People working in nearby buildings, including a 7-Eleven store right on the edge of the sinkhole, were told to evacuate. There were no reports of injuries.
The city’s government said it believed the collapse was connected to construction work on a nearby underground train line.
“The electricity went off suddenly and I head a loud boom,” Kyodo news agency quoted a witness a witness as saying.
“I went outside and saw a huge hole.”
Another local worker said: “The road has collapsed near my office and now I can’t go to work because we’ve been told to evacuate.”
Residents of the hamlet cast their votes at midnight. Out of the six votes cast, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump four votes to two, a result that may foreshadow voting trends hours later in the rest of polling stations across America.
Libertarian Gary Johnson received one vote, and Mitt Romney received a surprise write-in ballot, USA Today reported.
| According to New Hampshire law, communities with fewer than 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them as soon as all registered voters have cast their ballots.
The best known of these three towns, Dixville Notch has been voting at midnight every election since 1960. Neil Tillotson, the former owner of the Balsams Grant Resort Hotel, which closed in 2011, started midnight voting in Dixville in 1960 to stir up publicity for the resort. Almost all of the Dixville voters are employees of the resort .
This could be Dixville’s last year in the election spotlight, however.
Les Otten, a New England businessman, bought the Balsams and plans to redevelop it into a massive ski resort. That could bring the population in Dixville over 100 people, thereby ending its midnight voting tradition.
Millsfield, located just over 12 miles down the road from Dixville Notch, is the newest town to get in on the act. Millsfield began midnight voting as early as 1952 (no one seems certain exactly when) and stopped the practice in the 1960s (again, no one seems certain exactly when). The town was invited to take the tradition back up last year by New Hampshire’s secretary of State, in honor of the 100th anniversary of the New Hampshire primary.
In other results, Clinton also beat Trump in Hart’s Location 17-14, but Trump was the overwhelming favorite in Millsfield, with a 16-4 edge. Overall, in the three tiny towns, Trump won 32 votes, while Clinton got 25.
Libertarian Gary Johnson picked up three votes. Bernie Sanders, John Kasich and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney got write-in votes.
Meanwhile both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump raced through several battleground states on Monday in a last-ditch attempt to encourage their supporters to show up and vote on Tuesday.
Clinton sought to capture more support from Latinos, African-Americans and young people, while Trump looked to win over disaffected Democrats and rev up a middle class that he said has been sidelined by the political establishment.
Clinton held the biggest rally of her campaign in Philadelphia on Monday night, drawing a crowd that the city’s Fire Department put at 33,000 to hear her and President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama and rockers Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.
“Tomorrow we face the test of our time,” Clinton told supporters, saying they could decide what sort of country they wanted to live in. “We choose to believe in a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted America.”
Obama, who campaigned earlier in the day for Clinton in Ann Arbor, Michigan, reiterated his charge that Trump is “temperamentally unfit to be commander in chief,” and said Clinton offered an experienced and accomplished alternative.
“You don’t just have to vote against someone, you have someone extraordinary to vote for,” Obama said. “She will work and she will deliver, she won’t just tweet.”
Trump told voters at an evening rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, they had one question facing them at the ballot box on Tuesday.
“Do you want America to be ruled by the corrupt political class or do you want America to be ruled again by the people?” he asked. “Tomorrow the American working class will strike back.”
With only hours left before Election Day, the Clinton campaign was boosted by Sunday’s unexpected announcement by FBI Director James Comey that the agency stood by its July decision not to press any criminal charges in an investigation of Clinton’s email practices while she was secretary of state.
The Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project gave Clinton a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump, seeing her on track to win 303 Electoral College votes out of the 270 needed, to Trump’s 235.
With surveys indicating a tight race in Michigan, which Democrats have long counted on winning, both candidates made campaign appearances there. Pennsylvania, another vote-rich state, was also seen as fertile ground by both camps in the closing hours of their campaigns.

CNN reports that Reno died Monday morning following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. She was 78-years old at the time of her death.
Reno served in the Clinton White House from 1993 to 2001. She oversaw the high-profile convictions of numerous bombers including Ted Kaczynski, the domestic terrorist infamously known as the “Unabomber;” Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their roles in the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing; and Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.
She was criticised for a deadly raid on the Branch Davidian cult compound in Waco, Texas after just weeks in office. Sect leader David Koresh and some 80 followers were killed during the raid.
Questions were asked afterwards about the legality of the FBI raid and why it was that so many people were killed.
She will be remembered for her frequently recited childhood stories from the Everglades swamps of Florida with a mother who wrestled alligators, the newspaper reports, to a home which included a family of peacocks, all named Horace.
A 13-year-old boy in India whose head was hanging at a 180-degree angle has died just eight months after life-changing surgery to fix it.
Mahendra Ahirwar, who suffered from a rare condition called congenital myopathy which made the muscles in his neck so weak his head would hang, passed away suddenly.
His mother Sumitra, 36, said he had his lunch, lay down to watch TV and died quietly and in no pain.
Dr Rajagopalan Krishnan, who completed the surgery to straighten his neck in February this year, said he was left shocked by his sudden death. He said:
‘I can only conjecture that a massive cardiac or pulmonary event might have occurred and often there are no premonitory symptoms in such cases. I think myopathy and poor chest muscles caught up with him in the end.
‘He was among the bravest children I’ve seen since my return to India and I see the most terrible and neglected deformities.’ ‘For me, the joy and smile on his face when his head stopped sagging was one of the defining moments in my decision to operate on children with neglected and awful spinal disorders.
‘I am sure his absence will cause anguish to everyone who was involved in his care, his smile was brighter than the sun after his neck was straightened.’
The family cremated Mahendra in a traditional Hindu ceremony at the weekend, surrounded by 25 friends and family.
