Alek Sigley, 29, studies at Kim Il-sung University — the alma mater of Kim Jong-un. He opened a Twitter account just a few months ago and it's become a rare keyhole through which to view a fast-changing Pyongyang, North Korea.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is set to cross his country's heavily militarized border with South Korea on Friday for the first intra-Korea summit in more than a decade.
A train believed by carrying North Korean leader Kim Jong-un left Beijing almost as quickly as it appeared, and with no confirmation of who was on board.

World War I led to more than 16 million deaths and more than 20 million people wounded. To mark the anniversary of the start of the war on Tuesday, the UK went dark Monday night — a tribute to the nation's victims. That story tops our Global Scan.

What's it like to jump off a 104-story building? Let us show you. Plus would you get a haircut like your national leader? What if you had no choice? That may just be the case in North Korea. Those stories and more in today's Global Scan.
North Korea is about to have another election. And though the winners are not in doubt, government leaders still want a huge turnout, so they are turning to poems exhorting people to vote. Plus, at the NSA, even the spies are fed up ... with being spied on. All that and more, in today's Global Scan.
