U.S. military will negotiate with North Korea

The Pentagon says it's going to re-open negotiations with North Korea. The focus is resuming efforts to recover the remains of some of the estimated 5,500 U.S. service members unaccounted for from the 1950-53 Korean War. The Bush Administration stopped the recovery in 2005 because of concern about the safety of recovery teams in North Korea. No indication has been given yet as to how the security situation will be addressed.

Police explain why Pentagon roads were closed

Why were the roads shutdown around the Pentagon after last Friday's incident involving a Marine Corps Reserve Lance Corporal? "Based on the fact that he had fled from the Fort Meyers Police Department that he wasn't forthcoming with his information and as far as identifiers and what he was doing and he did have some products with him that were a little bit concerning initially. That's we felt it as appropriate to close these roadways down," says U.S. Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser. Yonathan Melaku was taken into custody after being caught on the grounds of Arlington Cemetery after dark. His car was found near the Pentagon.
