    1. Dozens killed in Baghdad attack

    In Iraq, the death toll from devastating* back-to-back market bombings carried out by the Islamic State group in eastern Baghdad climbed to 73 on Monday, officials said.

    Several of the critically wounded died overnight while 112 people remain in hospital, two police officials said. Also, at least five people were still missing after the Sunday blast that ripped through the crowded Mredi market in the Shiite district of Sadr City, followed by a suicide bombing amid the crowd that had quickly gathered at the site to help the victims.

    Three medical officials confirmed the latest death toll, which rose from the toll of 59 reported late on Sunday. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

    2. N. Korea presents detained American

    North Korea presented a detained American student before the media on Monday in Pyongyang, where he tearfully apologized for attempting to steal a political banner — at the behest, he said, of a member of a church back home who wanted it as a “trophy” — from a staff-only section of the hotel where he had been staying.

    North Korea announced in late January it had arrested Otto Warmbier, a 21-year-old University of Virginia undergraduate student. It said that after entering the country as a tourist he committed an anti-state crime with “the tacit* connivance* of the U.S. Government and under its manipulation.”

    3. Clinton has one eye on Trump after win

    Fresh off a runaway win in the South Carolina primary, U.S. Democrat Hillary Clinton turned her sights to a possible match-up with Republican front-runner Donald Trump in the November 8 presidential election.

    Without mentioning Trump’s name, the former secretary of state made it clear on Saturday she was already thinking about taking on the real estate mogul* whose recent string of victories made him the favorite to be the Republican nominee for the White House race.

    4. 3 charged in Fukushima disaster

    Three former Japanese utility executives were formally charged for alleged negligence in the Fukushima nuclear disaster on Monday, becoming the first ones from the company to face a criminal court.

    A group of five court-appointed lawyers indicted Tsunehisa Katsumata, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Co. at the time of the crisis, along with two other TEPCO executives. The three men, charged with professional negligence, were not arrested.

    The indictment follows a decision by an 11-member judicial committee in July to send the three men to a criminal court after prosecutors had dropped the case twice, saying they could not obtain sufficient evidence to establish criminal case against them.

    5. Car bomb in Thailand injures 9

    A roadside police patrol camp in southern Thailand was attacked on Saturday by an improvised* car bomb that left seven officers and two civilians injured, police said.

    The attack in Pattani province was believed to have been carried out by Muslim insurgents* who targeted the outpost* used by special forces, said police Col. Keerati Waeyoosoh, the Pattani police superintendent.

    Keerati said the bomb, made from a cylinder* gas tank, was placed inside a car that had been stolen earlier Saturday from a tire shop whose owner was shot three times but survived.

    6. Australia plans increase in defense budget

    Australia unveiled a massive new investment in the nation’s defense capabilities on Thursday to address what Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called “high stakes” and “momentous* times” in Asia.

    Citing increased defense spending around the region and potential flashpoints* in the South China Sea and the Korean peninsula*, he said the government was committed to combating the most challenging strategic environment “we have faced in peacetime.”(SD-Agencies)
