While polls still show Le Pen and centrist independent Emmanuel Macron leading the field on around 22-24 percent each, Fillon and radical Communist-backed candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon are closing in on them, on around 18-20 percent each.

While China advocates for diplomatic outreach, the officials said the goal of engagement would have to be North Korea's denuclearisation. It can not lead to an arms control agreement or reduction of the North's atomic arsenal that would imply American acceptance of ...
The isolated dictatorship's state-run TV showed what appeared to be several KN-08 and KN-14 missiles rolled out on trucks at the parade. The failed launch occurred near Sinpo, on North Korea's east coast, and the missile blew up nearly immediately, according to the United States military.
