The explicit blacklisting of sites would be a break with past practice in North Korea, when officials most likely monitored the Internet activity of foreign users but did so quietly. The 3G data connection on mobile phones itself has not been disrupted and many sites, including Facebook and Twitter, continued to function normally.
TOKYO (AP) — North Korea, already one of the least-wired places in the world, appears to be cracking down on the use of the Internet by even the small number of foreigners who can access it with relative freedom by blacklisting…

Already hit hard by austerity measures, Greek pensioners now face another blow amid Greece's capital controls. There are limits on how much cash they can withdraw at a time, long lines at banks, and confusion about the hours and days those banks will allow them to take their cash.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Don't mention the golden years to Michaelis Kotaras. Not after the 78-year-old got up early Wednesday to stand in line, twice, outside the National Bank of Greece for the privilege of going inside…

The justices voted 5-4 in a case from Oklahoma that the sedative midazolam can be used in executions without violating the Eighth Amendment prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. The drug was used in executions in Arizona, Ohio and Oklahoma in 2014 that took longer than usual and raised concerns that it did not perform its intended task of putting inmates into a coma-like sleep.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court upheld the use of a controversial drug in lethal injection executions Monday, as two dissenting justices said for the first time that they think it's "highly likely" that the death penalty…

Germany has resisted the idea of debt relief for Greece, but Greece's forgiveness of Germany's debt after WWII helped spur the latter's economic recovery:
LONDON (AP) — Forgiving debt, if done right, can get an economy back on its feet. Though Germany is resisting Greece's pleas for some relief, it should know better than most what it can achieve. After the hell of World…
