North Korea details plan to fire
missile salvo toward Guam
Yemen’s civil war turns country
into cholera breeding ground
SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has announced a detailed
plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific
territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to U.S. bomb-
ers. If carried out, it would be the North’s most provocative mis-
sile launch to date.
The announcement Thursday warned that the North is finaliz-
ing a plan to fire four of its Hwasong-12 missiles over Japan and
into waters around the tiny island, which hosts 7,000 U.S. mili-
tary personnel on two main bases and has a population of 160,000.
Japan and South Korea vowed a strong reaction if the North
were to go through with the plan.
It said the plan, which involves the missiles hitting waters 19 to
25 miles from the island, could be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for
approval within a week or so. It would be up to Kim whether the
move is actually carried out.
It is unclear whether — or exactly why — North Korea would
risk firing missiles so close to U.S. territory. Such a launch would
almost compel the United States to attempt an intercept and possi-
bly generate further escalation.
taking steps to limit their presence.
Experts and analysts say the money earned by workers in the
Gulf helps Pyongyang build the missiles it now uses to threaten the
U.S. territory of Guam, as well as other parts of the U.S. and Amer-
ica’s Asian allies.
Analysis: Trump throws his own
North Korea strategy a curve
Maggot case gives rare
look at neglect probes
WASHINGTON — Just when President Donald Trump’s strat-
egy for North Korea was finally starting to show dividends, he
threw it a curve.
At long last, his administration seemed to be speaking with one
voice on a key national security issue, a surprisingly elusive task in
Trump’s first six months. But he upended all that with a threat to
slam the North with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if
it provoked America again.
By inflaming the situation, Trump also may have undermined
the only serious prospect for resolving the North Korea crisis: suc-
cessful cooperation with China.
Trump’s strategy has relied on a delicate diplomatic two-step:
increasing pressure on China in hopes that, in turn, China will use
its influence to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear aspirations.
Trump had been deeply frustrated by China’s recalcitrance, but
there were signs it was finally coming around, including its vote
in favor of the toughest U.N. sanctions in a generation — possi-
On its face, Trump’s move seemed to fit a pattern in which
he becomes his own biggest obstacle to achieving his objectives.
Sometimes he exposes divisions within his administration that oth-
ers can then exploit. Other times, Trump stakes out positions so
unpopular that needed partners can’t afford to work with him. In
other cases, he’s played directly into his critics’ worst suspicions
ROME, N.Y. — In his bed at a New York state group home for
the severely disabled, Steven Wenger lay helpless against a silent
A slimy, wriggling clump was growing around the hole in his
throat near his breathing tube. Nurses peered closer and made a
discovery almost unheard of in modern American health care:
For Wenger, unable to walk, speak, or breathe without a ventila-
tor since a car accident 26 years ago, it was the first of two infesta-
tions of the larval flies in his throat over successive days last sum-
mer, resulting in repeated trips to an emergency room and a state
investigation that found days of neglect by caretakers. And if The
Associated Press had not obtained a confidential report on the case,
it’s unlikely anyone in the outside world would have known any-
thing about it.
That’s because in New York and most other states, details of
abuse and neglect investigations in state-regulated institutions for
the disabled, addicted and mentally ill are almost never made pub-
lic, even with the names blacked out.
As a result, it’s easier to check the health record of a neighbor-
hood restaurant than to find out about lapses in care in state insti-
tutions and group homes that people may be considering for their
loved ones’ around-the-clock care.
Kuwait says North Korean
workers welcome amid crisis
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Stalwart U.S. ally Kuwait
says it will continue to grant visas to North Korean laborers whose
wages allegedly aid Pyongyang in evading international sanctions.
That’s according to a government statement sent to The Asso-
ciated Press on Thursday before its ruler travels to Washington to
meet President Donald Trump.
Kuwait also says it never stopped issuing work visas for North
Koreans, refuting a major U.S. State Department human traffick-
ing report released in June that applauded the Mideast nation for

SANAA, Yemen — Collapsing on sidewalks and constantly
vomiting, some of the Yemeni villagers barely make it to the tiny
health center where doctors spread carton sheets in the backyard
and use trees to hang bags of IV fluids for patients.
They are part of a stream of hundreds of suspected cholera vic-
tims that continues to converge on the center from the impover-
ished town of Bani Haydan in Yemen’s northern Hajja province.
Just hours after being infected, vomiting and diarrhea cause severe
dehydration that can kill without rapid intervention.
Yemen’s raging two-year conflict has turned the country into an
incubator for lethal cholera: Primitive sanitation and water systems
put Yemenis at risk of drinking feces-contaminated water; wells
are dirtied by runoff from rainfall on piles of garbage left uncol-
lected for weeks; farmland is irrigated with broken sewers due to
lax oversight and corruption; medical intervention is delayed due
to unpaid government employees and half of the country’s health
facilities are out of service.
Hurricane Franklin makes
landfall on Mexico’s coast
The suspect in car attack near
Paris is an Algerian national
PARIS — A police source says the suspect in an attack on sol-
diers near Paris is a 37-year-old Algerian man who was legally liv-
ing in France.
The man, Hamou Benlatreche, was known to French police
over minor crimes but has never been convicted in court, the offi-
cer told The Associated Press Thursday. He spoke anonymously
because he was not allowed to speak on an ongoing investigation.
French media, who reported the same name, say the suspect
was living in the suburb of Bezons, north of Paris, where police
searched a building on Wednesday night.
The suspect rammed his car into a group of soldiers Wednesday,
MEXICO CITY — Hurricane Franklin roared ashore on Mex-
ico’s central Gulf coast early Thursday, threatening to pound a
mountainous region prone to flash floods and mudslides with tor-
rential rains and heavy winds.
Franklin strengthened into the first hurricane of the Atlantic
season on Wednesday and its landfall as Category 1 storm early
Thursday was its second on Mexican territory in three days. As
a tropical storm, Franklin made a relatively mild run across the
Yucatan Peninsula earlier in the week.
Authorities in Veracruz ordered classes canceled at public
schools as a precautionary measure. Schools are frequently used as
storm shelters in Mexico.
Study: Trump actions trigger
health premium hikes for 2018
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration’s own actions
are triggering double-digit premium increases on individual health
insurance policies purchased by many consumers, a nonpartisan
study has found.
The analysis released Thursday by the Kaiser Family Founda-
tion found that mixed signals from President Donald Trump have
created uncertainty “far outside the norm,” leading insurers to seek
higher premium increases for 2018 than would otherwise have
been the case.
The report comes with Republicans in Congress unable to
deliver on their promise to repeal and replace the Obama-era
Affordable Care Act. Trump, meanwhile, insists lawmakers try
again. The president says “Obamacare” is collapsing, but he’s also
threatened to give it a shove by stopping billions of dollars in pay-
ments to insurers. Some leading Republicans are considering fall-
back measures to stabilize markets.
Researchers from the Kaiser foundation looked at proposed
premiums for a benchmark silver plan across major metropolitan
areas in 20 states and Washington, D.C. Overall, they found that 15
of those cities will see increases of 10 percent or more next year.
The highest: a 49 percent jump in Wilmington, Delaware.
The only decline: a 5 percent reduction in Providence, Rhode
