Puerto Rico fears post-Maria murder surge: 11 days, 32 slain

Puerto Rico fears post-Maria murder surge: 11 days, 32 slain

World
Before the sun rose on the first day of 2018, someone called 911 to report the charred, bullet-riddled body of a man with a snake-like tattoo on his left hand, lying beside a road in the Puerto Rican town of Vega Baja. The next day, two men were found dead with their feet and hands bound in Bayamon, a working-class city southwest of the capital. Another man was shot to death before dawn in nearby Vega Baja while trying to stop thieves from stealing his generator. Thirty-two people have been slain in Puerto Rico in the first 11 days of the year, double the number killed over the same period in 2017. If the surge proves to be more than just a temporary blip, January could be the most homicidal month on the island in at least two years, adding a dangerous new element to the island's recovery...

Home rules tweaked in Haryana, now get occupation certificates in 8 days

Finance
GURUGRAM: The Haryana government has decided to allow people constructing homes to file a self-declaration mentioning they have followed the building plan in an attempt to streamline the process of issuing occupation certificates. Under the amended Haryana Building Code, 2017, a person building a home will have to give a "self-certificate" through a recognised architect to the department of town and country planning.

Why North Korea hasn't launched a missile in 56 days despite repeated tests

Why North Korea hasn't launched a missile in 56 days despite repeated tests

World
Though President Donald Trump is on a high-profile visit to Asia this week, North Korea has refrained from testing another ballistic missile or nuclear bomb, making this the longest stretch of time since Trump took office that the regime has not conducted a test. Is it a sign the administration's approach to North Korea is working, even as Washington and Pyongyang continue to exchange volleys in a war of words? North Korea tested its first missile just 22 days after Trump was inaugurated on Jan. 20. From March to May, the regime conducted tests every one to two weeks. It has been 56 days since North Korea's last test of a ballistic missile, an intermediate-range KN-17 that flew over the Japanese island of Hokkaido. As Trump has made his way through South Korea, Japan and China this we...
