VOA NEWS

August 12, 2017

From Washington, this is VOA news. Hello, I'm Steve Miller.


U.S. President Donald Trump has issued a new warning to North Korea.

"And if he utters one threat, in the form of an overt threat, which, by the way, he has been uttering for years, and his family has been uttering for years, or if he does anything with respect to Guam, or any place else that's an American territory or an American ally, he will truly regret it and he will regret it fast."

Trump's comments come as the Chinese Global Times says Beijing would not assist North Korea if it launches a first strike that threatens U.S. soil and the U.S. retaliates.


President Trump also said he is considering possible military action against Venezuela in response to President Nicholás Maduro's power grab.

"We have many options for Venezuela, and by the way, I'm not going to rule out a military option. We have many options for Venezuela."

He added that it's "certainly something that we could pursue." Trump had been blasting Maduro's moves to consolidate power, describing him as a "dictator."


Ten Nobel Peace Prize winners are appealing to Saudi Arabia's king and the crown prince to show mercy and halt the executions of 14 young people sentenced to death for participating in protests in 2012.

In a letter released on Friday, the laureates say the 14 minority Shiite Muslims were convicted in a mass trial and sentenced "based on the actions of the worst defendant."

Two passenger trains collided on Friday just outside Egypt's Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. From Cairo, Edward Yeranian has the story.

Ambulance crews and rescue workers come to the wreckage of two passenger trains which collided on Egypt's main rail-line between the capital Cairo and the country's second largest city of Alexandria.

A train from the city of Port Said reportedly failed to heed a warning signal colliding with the train from Cairo.

Egyptian media reported that the driver of one of the two trains that collided died on the spot and that the other was arrested and taken in for questioning as is the custom in Egypt after a major accident involving the loss of life.
