Kim Jong Un to Make 1st Foreign Trip To Russia

Kim, who took power in 2011 after the death of his father Kim Jong Il, is likely to visit China following the trip to Russia. "About 20 state leaders have confirmed their attendance, and the North Korean leader is among them," South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a Kremlin spokesman as saying.

2 Israeli Soldiers Killed, 7 Hurt in Hezbollah Attack

Two soldiers were killed and seven wounded Wednesday after an Israeli military vehicle was hit by an anti-tank missile near the Israeli-Lebanese border, NBC News reported. A U.N. peacekeeper was also killed. Israel responded by firing at least 20 artillery shells into Lebanon. Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the attack. In a statement, the militant Islamist group said its attack was carried out by a division calling itself the "Heroic Martyrs of Quneitra" — a reference to an Israeli airstrike on the Golan Heights on Jan. 18 that killed six Hezbollah fighters. The clash came after Israel launched airstrikes earlier Wednesday targeting Syrian army artillery posts in response to rockets fired the previous day into the Israeli-held Golan Heights. Read »

Auschwitz Survivors Mark Death Camp Liberation 70 Years After

World leaders and some 300 survivors of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most notorious Nazi death camp, marked the 70th anniversary of the camp's liberation by the Soviets on Jan. 27, 1945. One of the survivors, Mordechai Ronan began weeping when he got close to the entrance of the camp in Oswiecim, Poland, on Tuesday, NBC News reported. "I'm a victor! I'm a victor because I'm here!" Ronan, 85, shouted between spasms of tears. He was here before in 1944 as a frightened 11-year-old who had somehow escaped the Nazi selection process that consigned most children to the gas chamber. The Germans killed some 1.1 million people at the camp, most of them Jews, but also Gyspsies, homosexuals, Polish political prisoners and others. Read »
