    A Vietnamese family suffered an unspeakable tragedy after staff at a South Korean hospital allegedly mixed up the mother’s chart with another patient and performed an abortion while she was under anesthesia. According to The Korea Times, the mother, who is not named in reports, was six weeks pregnant when she and her husband visited the Seoul hospital in early August for a confirmation of her pregnancy and prenatal care. After confirming the pregnancy, hospital staff recommended a nutritional supplement. While she was waiting for it, however, a nurse and doctor allegedly mixed up her chart with that of another...

    SEOUL, South Korea — An expectant mother who visited a medical clinic in Seoul, South Korea, last month to receive a nutritional shot woke up hours later to learn she had been mistakenly been given an abortion, the police said on Wednesday. The police said they planned to ask prosecutors to indict the clinic’s doctor and a nurse on charges of inflicting accidental injury. The staff, the police said, administered anesthesia and performed an abortion on the woman, a Vietnamese national, who was six weeks pregnant. The police did not identify the woman, the doctor or the nurse. There have...

    More advanced societies tend to have more educated citizens, which is one reason why politicians of all stripes call for sending more students to college. One country has taken that impulse to its logical extreme—but has found that more is not always better. South Korea has a more educated population than any other country in the developed world. Seventy percent of young Koreans (ages 25-34) have completed some higher education, and a similar proportion of high school graduates continue on to college or university each year. By contrast, only 49 percent of young Americans have a degree beyond high school....

    Washington Post ^ | August 23 | Simon Denyer
    With tensions between the neighbors the highest in decades, South Korea’s delegation to Japan’s 2020 Games raised concerns this week about radiation at Olympic venues near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant and the risk that athletes might consume contaminated food. The protest formed part of a three-pronged attack that suggested South Korea is using the tsunami-induced 2011 nuclear meltdown as another stick with which to poke Japan. The two sides’ dispute over trade and compensation for wartime forced labor escalated Thursday when Seoul scrapped a bilateral military intelligence-sharing pact. Seoul has struck at what it knows is a tender spot....

    ... Initial reports suggest there is lots of blame to go around, from Trump’s overestimation of his own abilities as a dealmaker, to Kim’s possibly unrealistic expectations as to how little the US would be willing to accept, to the uncompromising hawkishness of the national security adviser, John Bolton, who may have intentionally sabotaged negotiations by throwing extra demands into the mix at the last minute. Some of this blame, however, belongs to Democratic politicians and liberal commentators, who have reliably denigrated Trump’s Korean outreach from the beginning, and did everything they could to diminish the Hanoi summit’s chances for...

Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui, addressing an urgent meeting Friday of diplomats and foreign media in Pyongyang, including The Associated Press, said the North was deeply disappointed by the failure of the two sides to reach any agreements at the Hanoi summit between Kim and...
