Hungry North Korean soldiers 'ordered to steal corn because war is imminent'

  
As North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un boasts of his military prowess and flaunts his high tech weapons to the world, his malnourished soldiers are said to be stealing corn from fields to stave off hunger pangs. Officers are ordering their troops to supplement their meagre food rations by plundering local fields, in order to keep up their strength for battle, according to a report in the Daily NK. "The military officers are instructing their soldiers, exhausted after training, to eat corn in the fields because war is imminent," a source in North Hamgyong Province told the news website. Inside North Korea "They are even threatening their soldiers, saying: if you become malnourished despite permission to eat the corn, you will face difficulties." Another source in Ryanggang Province claimed that soldiers carrying big sacks of unripened corn had frequently been spotted trying to sell their wares at markets. The desperate conditions of his army paints a stark contrast with Mr Kim's brash threats since he fired a ballistic missile over Japan on Tuesday. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un presides over a target strike exercise conducted by the special operation forces of the Korean People's Army Credit: AFP On Wednesday he hailed the test as a "good experience in…rocket operation for an actual war" and as a "meaningful prelude to containing" Guam, the US Pacific territory he threatened with missile strikes earlier this month. North Korean citizens, some of whom now have to guard their fields from marauding troops, are reported to be unimpressed by his bravado. "An increasing number of residents are pointing out that, for them, provoking the US is a losing battle," the Daily NK reported.

Mumbai building collapse kills at least 12 people amid severe flooding

  
At least 12 people died when a building collapsed in Mumbai, India's financial capital, after heavy rains that have wreaked havoc in many parts of South Asia. More than a dozen others were pulled from the rubble of the four-storey residential building, which gave way at around 8.40am (4.10am BST) on Thursday in the densely populated area of Bhendi Bazaar. It was the most recent deadly housing collapse to strike the teeming metropolis - shining a spotlight on poor construction standards in the Asian country - and came after flooding in the city killed 10 people. "Twelve people have died including three women and nine men. Rescue operations are ongoing," said Vijay Khabale-Patil, a spokesman for Mumbai's civic authority. Firefighters and rescue workers search for survivors at the site of a collapsed building in Mumbai Credit: REUTERS Ambulances took more than a dozen injured to the nearby JJ Hospital in the south of the city, while locals joined a 43-member NDRF team in picking through piles of debris in a hunt for survivors. "I can confirm that 11 people are dead and 15 have been brought here injured, including three who are in a critical condition," the dean of the hospital, TP Lahane said. Building collapses are common in Mumbai, especially during the monsoon season from late June to September, when heavy rains lash the western Indian city, weakening poorly built structures. Severe downpours caused flooding and chaos across Mumbai and the neighbouring region of Thane on Tuesday, although waters had receded by late Wednesday. People and rescue personnel are seen after a building collapsed in Mumbai, India Credit: REUTERS Bhendi Bazaar, a scruffy colonial-era market, is one of Mumbai's most historic districts and officials said the collapsed building was 117 years old. It had been marked for demolition as part of a multi-million pound redevelopment project that is currently replacing hundreds of ramshackle, decades-old low-rise buildings with around a dozen glitzy new tower blocks. Distraught residents said they rushed to the scene of the collapsed structure after hearing a loud crash. "There was a huge noise and we all came running," said Naseem Mogradia. Rescuers using diggers could be seen sifting through the remains Credit: REUTERS Shahid Khan, 52, said he didn't know whether his friend and seven family members who lived on the ground floor were alive or dead. "I am just trying to help with rescue operations," he said. Mumbai has been hit by several deadly building collapses in recent years, often caused by shoddy construction, poor quality materials or ageing buildings. Millions are forced to live in cramped, ramshackle properties because of spiralling real estate prices and a lack of housing for the poor. Activists say housing societies, private owners and builders often cut corners to save on costs. Mumbai is particularly vulnerable to deadly collapse with millions forced to live in cramped, ramshackle properties Credit: REUTERS Rent control acts mean landlords cannot afford to maintain buildings, while poor people choose to remain in homes even after they have been declared unsafe because they have nowhere else to go. "Most of the buildings in Bhendi Bazaar are old and dilapidated. We always live in fear that they will collapse during monsoons," 63-year-old Mohammed Shaikh said. In July, 17 people including a three-month-old baby died when a four-storey building gave way in the northern suburb of Ghatkopar. In 2013, 60 people were killed when a residential block came crashing down in one of Mumbai's worst housing disasters. People look on after a building collapsed in Mumbai Credit: REUTERS On Thursday, officials in Mumbai said the death toll from floods in and around the city were expected to rise above 10 as the waters receded. "We are still on the lookout for more missing persons and the number may go up," said Santosh Kadam, spokesman for disaster control in Thane. More than 1,200 have been killed India, Nepal a

Explosions reported at flooded chemical plant in Texas after Hurricane Harvey

  
French chemicals group Arkema confirmed on Thursday two explosions at its plant in Crosby, Texas, and added there was a risk of further explosions at the site. "We want local residents to be aware that the product is stored in multiple locations on the site, and a threat of additional explosion remains," Arkema said in a statement. "Please do not return to the area within the evacuation zone until local emergency response authorities announce it is safe to do so," it added. Smoke and an explosion were reported on Thursday morning at the flood-hit chemical plant. The Arkema chemical plant is flooded The company evacuated remaining workers at the damaged plant on Tuesday, and Harris County ordered the evacuation of residents within a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) radius of the plant, which makes organic peroxides used in the production of plastic resins, polystyrene, paints and other products. One Sheriff's Deputy has been taken to hospital after inhaling fumes from the explosion. It was reported earlier that Arkema SA expected chemicals to catch fire or explode at its heavily flooded plant in Crosby, Texas in the coming days because the plant has lost power to its chemical cooling systems, a company official said on Wednesday. Hurricane Harvey hits Texas, in pictures The company evacuated remaining workers on Tuesday, and Harris County ordered the evacuation of residents in a 1.5-mile(2.4-km) radius of the plant that makes organic peroxides used in the production of plastic resins, polystyrene, paints and other products. Richard Rowe, chief executive officer of Arkema's North America unit, told reporters that chemicals on the site would catch fire and explode if they are not properly cooled. He said the company had no way to prevent an explosion because the plant was swamped by about 6 feet (1.83 m) of water due to flooding from Harvey, which came ashore in Texas last week as a powerful Category 4 hurricane. "Materials could now explode and cause a subsequent and intense fire. The high water that exists on site, and the lack of power, leave us with no way to prevent it," Rowe said. He said he believed a fire would be "largely sustained on our site but we are trying to be conservative." The company said it opted not to move chemicals before the storm but made extensive preparations. The plant is 25 miles (40 km) northeast of Houston. Rowe did not disclose the volume of chemicals on the site and said it was speculative to predict how much damage the plant could sustain. He said a fire would not pose any "long-term harm or impact."

Shivering girl, 3, found clinging to drowned mother 'who saved her' in Texas floods

  
A shivering three-year-old girl found clinging to the body of her drowned mother in a rain-swollen canal in Southeast Texas was likely saved by her mother's effort to carry her child to safety from Harvey's floods, police said on Wednesday. Beaumont police identified the mother as 41-year-old Colette Sulcer and said her daughter was being treated for hypothermia but doing well. When rescuers found the mother and daughter, the girl was on her mother's back, holding on, said Police Officer Haley Morrow. "I envision what I would do if that was me in that situation and that's what I would do: I would put my child on my back and try to swim to safety or whatever," Morrow said. Hurricane Harvey hits Texas, in pictures Sulcer's vehicle got stuck Tuesday afternoon in the flooded parking lot of an office park just off Interstate 10, said Capt. Brad Penisson of the fire-rescue department in Beaumont. Squalls from Harvey were pounding Beaumont with up to 2 inches (5 centimeters) of rain an hour with 38 mph (60 kph) gusts, according to the National Weather Service. A witness saw the woman take her daughter and try to walk to safety when the swift current of a flooded drainage canal next to the parking lot swept them both away, Penisson said. Morrow said the woman's actions probably saved her little girl's life. "When they found her she was still up out of the water," Morrow said. The US Coast Guard responds to search and rescue requests in response to Hurricane Harvey in the Beaumont, Texas Credit: EPA A police and fire-rescue team in a boat caught up to them a half-mile downstream from Sucler's vehicle, according to Penisson. Rescuers pulled them into the boat just before they would have gone under a railroad trestle where the water was so high that the boat could not have followed. First responders lifted the child from her mother's body and tried to revive the woman, but she never regained consciousness. A citizen allowed first responders to load the mother and daughter into his truck and he brought them to a waiting ambulance, Morrow said.

Officer Carol Riley said the girl was doing "very well" and was chatty. "Everybody at the hospital and the officers just fell in love with her," Riley said.

Hurricane Harvey: bodies of six family members swept away in their van recovered in Houston

  
Rescuers in Houston say they have recovered the bodies of six family members whose van was swept away in flooding unleashed by Harvey over the weekend. Manuel and Belia Saldivar and four of their great-grandchildren ranging from six to 16 years in age drowned on Sunday as they were attempting to escape rising waters. The vehicle became stuck in muddy water and was carried away by the current, according to Rick Saldivar, whose brother Sammy was driving it at the time. Hurricane Harvey hits Texas, in pictures Their plight made headlines around the world as the full enormity of Hurricane Harvey revealed itself. With as much as 50 inches of rain falling around Houston, emergency services had been unable to reach the van until now. "We have a total confirmed six dead here at the scene inside this van," Ed Gonzalez, Harris County Sheriff, said after receding floodwaters allowed them to find the vehicle. A chaplain and medical examiner were at the scene on Wednesday, as family members waited for police to tow the vehicle out. Hurricane Harvey shelter evacuated after more flooding 01:21 "They're very saddened, obviously," Gonzalez said. "They're struggling with it." The disaster unfolded on Sunday when the rain was its most intense. Sammy Saldivar was able to climb out of the driver's seat, but was unable to save his relatives, according to Rick Saldivar's account. "The bad thing is he said he kept hearing the kids screaming," he told television station KHOU. "That's what he's hearing in his head over and over." Hurricane Harvey Police officers reached the scene on Sunday but were unable to get to the vehicle, which was already submerged beneath at least four feet of water, said Mr Gonzalez. So far, 30 people have been reported dead by local media, of which 17 have been confirmed by local authorities. Officers say they fear the toll will rise rapidly once the waters recede further, opening up previously inaccessible homes and vehicles.......
