South Korea stops paintings brought from North Korea

Jan 21, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean officials said Wednesday they have stopped businessmen from bringing North Korean paintings into the country that a report said were purchased at an art studio under U.N. sanctions. Observers say similar incidents could occur frequently as South Korea's liberal government pushes for deeper exchanges with North Korea. The Korea Customs Service said it has nine North Korean paintings that an unidentified number of businessmen tried to bring into the country after a trip to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, last November. It said the businessmen did not have the required South Korean government permission to...

Nissan unveils new Leaf car after Ghosn's arrest delays it

Jan 21, 2019

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Nissan is showing the beefed up version of its hit Leaf electric car as the Japanese automaker seeks to distance itself from the arrest of its star executive Carlos Ghosn. The unveiling Wednesday at Nissan Motor Co.'s Yokohama headquarters, southwest of Tokyo, had been postponed when Ghosn was arrested Nov. 19. Ghosn has been charged with underreporting his income. Tokyo prosecutors have extended his detention through Friday, adding breach of trust allegations. The Tokyo District Court rejected Wednesday the protest filed by Ghosn's lawyers on his prolonged detention. The lawyers have said they will appeal to a...

Hui poet fears for his people as China 'Sinicizes' religion

Jan 21, 2019

JINAN, China — Cui Haoxin is too young to remember the days of his people's oppression under Mao Zedong. The 39-year-old poet was born after the Cultural Revolution of 1966-76, when the Hui — China's second-largest Muslim ethnic group — were among the masses tormented by the Red Guard. In the years since, the Hui (pronounced HWAY) generally have been supportive of the government and mostly spared the kind of persecution endured by China's largest Muslim group, the Uighur. There are signs, though, that that is changing. Cui fears both that history may be repeating itself and for his own...
