South Korea Conducts Live-Fire Military Drills Off Coast

Dozens of South Korean warships, fighter jets and submarines are taking part in live-fire drills, in what Seoul says is a response to recent military provocations by the North.

The Tuesday exercises are "aimed at quashing the North's intention for provocation at sea," according to defense ministry spokesman Na Seung-Yong.

The reports of the test could not be confirmed and experts have stressed they believe Pyongyang is still years away from fully developing the technology.

Yingluck In Court to Face Criminal Charges

Former Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has appeared in court to face criminal charges over a mismanaged rice subsidy program that cost the country billions of dollars.

Ms. Yingluck, who was ousted as prime minister last year, told reporters Tuesday she is certain she will not be found guilty of the charges, which carry a possible sentence of 10 years in jail.

Ms. Yingluck is is charged with dereliction of duty for failing to stop corruption within the subsidy program, which paid farmers about two times the market price for their rice.

The ex-prime minister claims the case against her is politically motivated and insists the subsidies improved the quality of life for Thai farmers. Her opponents say the program was an attempt to win the farmers' political support.
