Boundary issues: Brexit threatens to reopen old wounds in Northern Ireland

Sunday 17:16 GMT

Brexit threatens to reopen wounds in Northern Ireland, where the physical border was a flashpoint during the 30-year conflict known as “the Troubles.”

Some in both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic fear Brexit would rekindle tensions and even spill over into violence.

Dr. Martin A. Weinstock, a professor of dermatology and epidemiology at Brown University, reported in a 2009 study of men with a history of two or more skin cancers that were not melanomas that the risk of an actinic keratosis progressing to skin cancer was about 1 percent after a year, and 4 percent after four years.

North Korea digs trench at DMZ border

Friday 23:51 GMT

North Korea appears to be fortifying its border in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) with the South, days after a soldier defected by running across.

The footage showed no visible fences, concrete bollards, or conspicuous obstacles that one might expect at the border of two countries which are technically still at war. What the ambassador's photo appears to show is an effort by the North Korean military to avoid the mistakes of 13 November.
