Seoul asks Pyongyang to move artillery from border

Seoul, June 17 (UITV/IANS) -  South Korea asked North Korea in military talks last week to move its long-range artillery away from the border area to lessen tensions, authorities said on Sunday.

Seoul proposed that Pyongyang redeploy its artillery to a zone 30 to 40 km away from the border.

"We conveyed our position to the North that in light of consultations between the North and the US over the denuclearization issue, we have to craft measures to drastically reduce military tensions by removing practical threats," an informed official told Yonhap News Agency.

Indian-American mother's crusade leads conviction of son's murderer

Carbondale (US), June 17 (UITV/IANS) - After a four-year crusade by an Indian-American mother seeking justice for her murdered son, the assailant has finally been convicted.

A jury on Thursday found Gaege Bethune guilty of Pravin Varughese's murder in Carbondale in 2014, according to media reports.

After the verdict, Pravin's mother Lovely Varughese told the Chicago Tribune: "Pravin's day finally came. He can rest in peace now."

After authorities had dismissed Pravin's death as an accident, his mother waged the relentless crusade mobilising politicians, media and the public.

Under pressure, authorities ordered a fresh investigation and appointed a special prosecutor.

Carbondale Police Chief Jody O'Guinn was also dismissed.

Bethune now faces a sentence of 20 years to 60 years.

The 19-year-old Pravin's body was found in a forested area in a frozen condition in February 2014, four days after the Southern Illinois University student went missing.

The local coroner declared his death an accident caused by exposure to extreme cold.

New subtype of prostate cancer identified

New York, June 17 (UITV/IANS) - Researchers have identified a new subtype of prostate cancer that occurs in about seven per cent of patients with advanced disease.

The subtype is characterised by loss of the gene CDK12. It was found to be more common in metastatic prostate cancer compared to early stage tumours that had not spread, said the study published in the journal Cell.

"Because prostate cancer is so common, seven per cent is a significant number," said senior study author Arul Chinnaiyan from the University of Michigan in the US.

Tumours in which CDK12 was inactivated were responsive to immune checkpoint inhibitors, a type...
