    LONDON/MOSCOW/BEIJING, May 23 (Yonhap) — Kim Jong-chol attended an Eric Clapton concert in London for the second time this week, but where the brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un headed Saturday remained unknown. He had been scheduled to arrive in Beijing on Saturday from Moscow on his way to Pyongyang, a source with knowledge of the stopover said. However, the name of Jong-chol was not on the registry of the flight from London to Moscow, according to the source. He also wasn’t seen at the Beijing airport Saturday.

    Nothing quite so blatantly sums up the victory of neoliberalism in 21st-century London, and that city’s relentless commodification of every aspect of its literary and historical legacy, like Platform 9 ž at King’s Cross. If anything, the vulgarity and banality of Platform 9 ž are too blatant; it’s a crack in the façade that demonstrates how thoroughly London has become Londonland, a nearly convincing scavenger-hunt simulation of itself, chock-full of royal bones and references to Dan Brown novels. To enter Westminster Abbey – which is still nominally a house of worship for the Anglican Communion, rather than a historical theme...

    The debate over which is the better city — New York City or London — has been raging for a long time. The cities are alike in that they're both densely populated cosmopolitan capitals of their respective countries, but they also have their differences. We rounded up the factors that are important for both inhabitants and visitors to take into consideration and used them to help settle the debate. As a side note: Even though I currently live in NYC, I'm a native Chicagoan, so I'm an impartial judge in the matter. COST Both London and NYC are notorious for...

    A large international conference of Holocaust deniers recently took place in the heart of London, Britain's Daily Mail reported on Saturday. "This is the biggest and most significant meeting of Holocaust deniers that Britain has ever seen. It is a very worrying development," the paper quoted Gerry Gable, an expert on the extreme Right who aided the news outlet's undercover investigation of the event, as saying. The event was held under a veil of secrecy at London's Grosvenor Hotel in a room draped with the Union Flag. A spokesman for the hotel said the room booking was made online and...

    A Saudi Arabian accused of associating with several of the September 11 hijackers and who disappeared from his home in the United States a few weeks before the attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, is in London working for his country’s state oil company. Abdulaziz al-Hijji and his wife Anoud left three cars at their luxurious home in a gated community in Sarasota, Florida — one of them new — and flew to Saudi Arabia in August 2001. The refrigerator was full of food; furniture and clothing were left behind; and the swimming pool water was still...

    This is the moment a group of 20 drunken thugs stormed a synagogue before hurling anti-Semitic abuse including 'Kill the Jews' at young worshippers inside. The dramatic brawl broke out after the group forced their way into the Ahavas Torah synagogue in Stamford Hill, north London, where young people were marking the end of the sabbath. The attack, which led to four men and two women being arrested, comes amid concerns about an increase of anti-Semitic attacks across Europe. A Jewish patrol group, which works to reduce violence against Jews, said it had stepped up patrols in the area. In...

If you are fat then it is simply not going to work.” One passenger was left furious by the announcement, saying: “I am not necessarily a big...

The BBC reported that the Kuwaiti-born Emwazi is in his mid-20s and from West London. British authorities chose not to identify him earlier for operational reasons. “I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” one of Emwazi’s close friends told the Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . .

"While ISIS runs amok in Syria and Iraq, demanding media attention through acts of barbarous cruelty, HuT (Hizb-ut- Tahrir or the Party of Liberation) is quietly building a global infrastructure of radicalised youth and deep-pocketed Arab support in preparation for the global Khilafat," said the report published in the latest edition of CTX Journal.

He told the Sunday Times that his citizenship was "an accident of birth that has left me with this thing. I've got to find a way of sorting it out". The Mayor of London, who was born in New York, has in the past been forced to pay US tax because of his American citizenship. He has just completed a six-day tour of cities in the US. Mr Johnson said he would approach US ambassador Matthew Barzun to explore what steps he had to...

Charles Lawley, from London, trawls Instagram looking for users who have who have made the mistake as he gets a kick out of correcting them.

    A 15-year-old girl was prevented from joining the terror group Isil after police dramatically stopped her plane on the runway at Heathrow. The youngster, from Tower Hamlets, London, had secretly saved up money for her flight without her parents’ knowledge and tried to flee to Syria. But counter-terrorism officers, who had been tipped over about her plans, raced to the airport and stopped her plane which had already begun taxiing on to the runway. The flight, which was heading to Turkey, was turned around while officers took the youngster off and returned her to her family. However, in an unrelated...

    Why can't the majority of black people and the rioters accept that the reason blacks are much more likely to get into trouble with the police is because they are much more likely to commit criminal acts, both serious and petty, and the reason they are much more likely to be harmed is because of the way they interact with the police, resisting arrest or even assaulting the officers? The question is rhetorical. They don't accept this because it's always difficult for every human being to recognise one's faults - or, as in this case, the faults of the...

They are therefore at risk of passing on the virus to others through unprotected sex, experts warn.  The figures, from Public Health England (PHE), have been released ahead of National HIV Testing Week. They show that overall, more people are being diagnosed earlier. The proportion of people diagnosed with a late stage of HIV infection fell from 57 per cent in 2004 to 42 per cent...

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Bary has been an active malcontent for some time. A video recently surfaced of the suspected ISIS militant speaking with an Australian television reporter during the London riots...

The pitch is aimed at convincing Americans of the merits of Russia Today - or RT - as an alternate news source to U.S. networks. Featuring a stylized image of former U.S Secretary of State Colin Powell at the United Nations, one ad reads: "This is what happens when there is no second opinion.

    New ID on Jack the Ripperby Standard ReporterCrime writer Patricia Cornwell claims to have unearthed proof that Jack the Ripper was in fact the painter Walter Sickert. The best-selling American novelist spent almost £3million in her investigation, flying US forensic experts to London to examine the notorious Ripper letters. She claims they bear the same distinctive water mark as Sickert's stationery. Ms Cornwell also bought 30 of the artist's works, ripping one of them up completely in her hunt for clues. Twenty years after the 1888 crimes Sickert painted a series of gruesome pictures of a murdered prostitute. Ms Cornwell ...

DNA evidence has now shown beyond reasonable doubt which one of six key suspects commonly cited in connection with the Ripper’s reign of terror...

    The Times of London, on Sept. 2, published an article by Gregg Carlstrom about a recent decision by Israeli authorities to declare 988 acres in the Gush Etzion region of Judea and Samaria (close to where three Israeli teens were kidnapped and murdered in June) ‘state land’ (Israel makes biggest land grab in 30 years after teens murdered). Here’s a map of the area in question:Map created by Ha’aretz The Times of London article (behind a pay wall) included this opening passage: However, it is completely inaccurate to say that Israel “formally annexed” the land in question, as such formal annexation would...

    Notorious anti-Israel British MP George Galloway was hospitalized on Saturday after being assaulted in London. Galloway, who leads the far-left Respect Party, was posing for pictures in the UK capital when he was punched repeatedly by an attacker, who apparently "made reference to the Holocaust", a spokesperson told the media. The precise motive is not yet clear but police say they arrested a suspect, named as 39-year-old Neil Masterson of London, for religiously-aggravated assault, as well as common assault against a man who attempted to defend the radical MP. The suspect is due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court on...

    Weeks before he was abducted, alleged members of a kidnapping network tied to ISIS were busted in London. Syrian extremists saw it as a reason to accelerate abductions. American journalist James Foley was captured in Syria in November 2012, just weeks after the British government arrested and charged three British citizens, who were alleged members of a group of foreign fighters associated with the Islamic State, for the kidnapping of two other Western journalists. It remains unclear whether these accused terrorists who later slipped through the fingers of the British legal system were part of the same extremist cell that...

    How quickly Great Britain is descending into darkness. Those who have been appointed to defend her are the ones most responsible for their nation’s certain future of chaos and violence. And the British intelligentsia, as they head to their own destruction and that of their nation, will congratulate themselves that they didn’t give way to the temptation of “Islamophobia.” It used to be that the free world stood together and said, “Never again.” Now a cowed, dhimmi, dying Britain bows low before arrogant and aggressive Islamic supremacists and says, “How about another round?” “Letters: Ancient hatred stalks the land once...
