US Vice President Pence Visits DMZ Amid High Tensions With North Korea:

US Vice President Mike Pence on Monday warned North Korea not to test the resolve of the US “or the strength of our military forces,” following a failed North Korean missile test.

Speaking in Seoul, Pence linked recent US military strikes in Syria and Afghanistan with the situation in Korea, saying they showed the “strength and resolve of our new president.”
“We will defeat any attack and we will meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective response,” Pence said, adding that when it came to North Korea “all options are on the table.”

CHYNA THOMAS, ISAIAH THOMAS’ SISTER, KILLED IN ONE-CAR ACCIDENT IN WASHINGTON

The sister of Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas was killed in a single-car accident Saturday morning in Federal Way, Washington.

According to the News Tribune‘s Craig Sailor, Chyna J. Thomas, 22, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident after the 1998 Toyota Camry careened into a barrier after the car drifted into the shoulder.

“That vaulted the vehicle head-on into the sign post,” State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said, per Sailor.

According to Washington State Patrol, Thomas was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
