North Korea has not stopped nuclear, missile programme according to confidential UN report

North Korea has not stopped nuclear, missile programme according to confidential UN reportNorth Korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile programmes in violation of United Nations sanctions, according to a confidential UN report seen by Reuters on Friday. The six-month report by independent experts monitoring the implementation of UN sanctions was submitted to the Security Council North Korea sanctions committee late on Friday. "(North Korea) has not stopped its nuclear and missile programmes and continued to defy Security Council resolutions through a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products, as well as through transfers of coal at sea during 2018," the experts wrote in the 149-page report. The North Korean mission to the United Nations did not respond to a request for comment on the report. The UN report said North Korea is cooperating militarily with Syria and has been trying to sell weapons to Yemen's Houthis.

The report comes as Russia and China suggest the Security Council discuss easing sanctions after US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met for the first time in June and Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization. The United States and other council members have said there must be strict enforcement of sanctions until Pyongyang acts. Hwasong-15 ballistic missiles during a military parade at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, February 2018 The UN experts said illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products in international waters had "increased in scope, scale and sophistication." They said a key North Korean technique was to turn off a ship's tracking system, but that they were also physically disguising ships and using smaller vessels. The Security Council has unanimously sanctioned North Korea since 2006 in a bid to choke off funding for Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, banning exports including coal, iron, lead, textiles and seafood, and capping imports of crude oil and refined petroleum products. The experts said "prohibited military cooperation with the Syrian Arab Republic has continued unabated." They said North Korean technicians engaged in ballistic missile and other banned activities have visited Syria in 2011, 2016 and 2017. Inside North Korea – forbidden photos The report said that experts were investigating efforts by the North Korean Ministry of Military Equipment and Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation (KOMID) to supply conventional arms and ballistic missiles to Yemen's Houthi group. A country, which was not identified, showed the experts a July 13, 2016 letter from a Houthi leader inviting the North Koreans to meet in Damascus "to discuss the issue of the transfer of technology and other matters of mutual interest," according to the report. The experts said that the effectiveness of financial sanctions was being systematically undermined by "deceptive practices" of North Korea.

Grandfather planned Australia family murder-suicide according to grieving father

Grandfather planned Australia family murder-suicide according to grieving fatherThe grieving father of four children who were killed in a family mass murder and suicide case that rocked Australia said on Sunday their grandfather was to blame for what he called a planned shooting. Aaron Cockman's children – three boys and a girl aged eight to 13 – were among the seven people found dead by police on a rural property in the small town of Osmington near the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. The bodies of their mother Katrina Miles, 35, and grandparents Peter and Cynda Miles were also found at the property. Cockman, who told reporters in Margaret River he was estranged from Katrina, said "Peter didn't snap". "I think he's thought this through. I think he's been thinking this through for a long time," Cockman added in his first public comments since the shootings. Katrina Miles with her four children Credit:  Facebook Police have yet to confirm which family member was the shooter but said they were not searching for any suspects. Three firearms licensed to Peter Miles were found by investigators. Cockman said that after feeling "so much anger" during legal struggles over custody of his children, such feelings had vanished. "I don't feel angry. I feel tremendous sadness for my kids. Angry will destroy you. I'm tremendously sad but I'll get through this." Investigators have not revealed the motive behind the shootings, with Cockman only saying he previously enjoyed a close relationship with Katrina's parents. "He (Peter) was like my best friend and I still love who he was, but his mental attitude… there are some people you just don't get on the wrong side of… and that's Peter and Cynda," Cockman added. Mass shootings are rare in Australia, which has strict gun laws introduced after 35 people were killed in 1996 at Port Arthur in Tasmania. The Osmington deaths are the worst mass shooting since then. Western Australia state Premier Mark McGowan, who travelled to Margaret River on Sunday, said he did not think gun laws could be further tightened but he would await recommendations from a coronial inquiry into the shootings.
