The governor of Vladivostok, facing corruption questions,
fakes a heart attack.

2 more Korean War soldiers, South Koreans, escape from
slavery in North Korea. There are some people in the South who think that before further concessions are made to the North, it might at least be persuaded to let go POWs it has held for 50 years.

New Zealand soldiers were used as extras in the filming
of Lord of the Rings, playing hobbits before going on to peacekeeping duties in East Timor. There's a good joke in there somewhere, no doubt.
