STRAIT OF HORMUZ
Seoul to send vessel to Strait of Hormuz after US pressure

Why Soleimani's killing has North Korea's Kim Jong Un worried
The killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani last week reinforces the North Korean view that the U.S. only takes such actions against states that lack a credible nuclear deterrent. More specifically, Trump’s choice of attack -- a covert drone strike against a high-level target -- feeds regime fears that any U.S. offensive against Pyongyang would start at the top.
