WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea may be capable of fielding a nuclear-armed missile that could reach U.S. soil, but because it has not tested such a weapon the odds of it being effective are "pretty darn low," the commander of U.S. forces in South Korea said Friday.
A rookie New York police officer remained in hospital in a serious condition on Friday after being attacked by a man with a hatchet who was then shot dead by officers. Police are investigating the motive but New York state governor Andrew Cuomo said he had no definitive information on suggestions that the attack Thursday was terror-related. "There is nothing we know of at this time that would indicate that were the case," police commissioner Bill Bratton said. The 25-year-old New York police officer, who was patrolling on foot in the city's borough of Queens with three other rookie officers, was seriously injured in the back of his head.
