British journalist Graham Phillips was arrested in Latvia. Was filming SS veterans march . March video, with Phillips seen at 8:36 and later--Resup (talk) 11:28, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

North Korea

I think it's clear that the best will be for NK to abandon nuclear program in exchange for unbreakable security guarantees (how? like unarmed peacekeepers? Rus/Chi?), + lifting sanctions and normalization of relations overall. But, US diplomacy was not successful and there is no indication that there is something which may change that, standalone. That could be a (much stronger) push by Russia - but state of relations stay bad, and poisoned -or China, which is already at the end of what it is likely to do. That leaves a choice between letting it be or going ahead, and it is a hard choice, but going ahead is not excluded, and it is not excluded from public pronouncements-actually aimed to find a peaceful solution. --10:06, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

What we know so far – IS claims responsibility for attack - The Guardian, 23:23 on 26 Aug, 2021

The Associated Press reports that the statement carried a photo of what the militant group said was the bomber who carried out the attack. The image shows the alleged attacker standing with the explosive belt in front of the black IS flag with a black cloth covering his face, only his eyes showing.
An IS official Amaq news agency said on its Telegram channel that the member was named Abdul Rahman al-Logari. The name suggests the the killer was Afghan.
IS also said the bomber managed to get past Taliban security checkpoints to come within 5 meters (yards) of a gathering of US soldiers, translators and collaborators before detonating his explosives. It said Taliban were also among the casualties.
The statement also said the bomber got around US security measures and that the camp that was targeted was where US forces were gathering paperwork for those who’ve worked with the military, AP reports.
It is important to note that these claims have not been verified independently – they are Islamic State’s version of what occurred
