Representatives from North Korea (L) and the South shake hands as they meet at the truce village of Panmunjom, in August 2015North and South Korean officials sat down Thursday for rare talks aimed at paving the way for a sustainable high-level dialogue that has constantly eluded the two rivals. The meeting at the border truce village of Panmunjom began shortly before 1:00pm (0400 GMT) and marked the first inter-governmental interaction since August when the two sides met to defuse a crisis that had pushed them to the brink of an armed conflict. A similar effort back in June 2013 saw both sides agree to hold what would have been the first high-level dialogue for six years -- only for Pyongyang to cancel a day before the scheduled meeting.

Protestors including Lamon Reccord, 16, confront police during a demonstration in response to the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald in ChicagoBy Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - The white Chicago policeman charged with murdering a black teenager he shot 16 times spent his first full day in custody on Wednesday in a jail hospital ward, but calm prevailed in the city despite fears of civil unrest over a video of the slaying. Five people were arrested late on Tuesday in mostly peaceful demonstrations following release of the graphic footage showing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald being gunned down in the middle of a street on Oct. 20, 2014, as he was walking away from police who had confronted him. A new round of protests on Wednesday at Chicago's criminal courthouse and City Hall were sparsely attended, although members of the City Council's black caucus again demanded the resignation of Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy.
