    1. U.S. supply rocket explodes after liftoff

    An unmanned commercial supply ship bound for the International Space Station exploded moments after liftoff* in Virginia on October 28.

    No injuries were reported following the first catastrophic* launch in NASA’s commercial spaceflight effort.

    2. ‘Kim Jong Un had ankle surgery’

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who recently disappeared from public view for about six weeks, had a cyst* removed from his left ankle.

    South Korea’s National Intelligence Service told lawmakers during a closed-door meeting that a cyst was found on Kim’s left ankle between May and June earlier this year. That cyst may have caused muscle nerve damage and prompted him to have ankle surgery between September and October, lawmaker Lee Cheol-woo said.

    3. Law that criminalizes gay sex upheld

    Singapore’s highest court ruled on October 29 that a law that criminalizes* sex between men is in line with the city-state’s constitution.

    The judgment comes as gay rights have become an increasingly thorny* issue in Singapore’s traditionally conservative society.

    4. Sea lion a regular at fishmonger’s shop

    The sea lion is one of the regulars at a fishery as she stands on her flippers* patiently queuing up for her fish supper.

    The sea lion made her way from the sea to the fish stall and waited for her turn for an hour. After being given scraps of fish by the generous fishmonger, the sea lion made her way back to the sea.

    These heart-warming pictures were taken by Colombian photographer Kristhian Castro, during a visit to Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, Ecuador.

    5. SAT delays test scores in China, S. Korea

    All students living in China and South Korea who took the SAT on October 11 will have their test scores delayed and reviewed due to allegations of widespread cheating, officials from the U.S. College Board and its global test administration and security provider, Educational Testing Service (ETS), said.

    The allegations of cheating, which are “based on specific, reliable information,” according to the officials, could be held up for as many as four weeks, potentially excluding some students for “early decision” or “early action” admissions to U.S. colleges and universities. Each individual test score will be evaluated for evidence of cheating.

    6. Boko Haram: kidnapped girls married

    The leader of Nigeria’s Islamic extremists has hold the world that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls have all been converted to Islam and married off.

    “If you knew the state your daughters are in today, it might lead some of you ... to die from grief,” Abubakar Shekau sneered, addressing the parents of the girls and young women kidnapped from a remote boarding school more than six months ago.

    In a new video released on October 31, the Boko Haram leader also denied there is a cease-fire with the Nigerian Government and threatened to kill an unidentified German hostage.

    7. ‘Plastic’ skulls are human remains

    A pair of American junk haulers* in Connecticut was stunned to learn over the weekend that two skulls* picked up at the cluttered home of a deceased* man on the day before Halloween were human remains, not made of plastic as they had thought.

    The skulls were among thousands of occult-related items that David Odice and Charlie Inzucchi of The Junkluggers Junk Removal Co. cleared out of the Fairfield home where Robert L. DeVitto lived until his death two weeks ago at age 56.

    “Being Halloween makes this real creepy and spooky, especially considering what else we found in the house,” Odice, 43, said on Saturday. (SD-Agencies)
