In the Company of Men
The subject of Neil LaBute's debut film, "In The Company of Men" is cruelty, pure and simple. Although one of the central focuses of the film is cruelty between men and women, the film as a whole is not that narrow. It also branches off and shows cruelty between men and other men, between bosses and workers, between business colleagues, and even between those who call themselves friends. In less t ... ...

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

A website that tracks events in the reclusive state said the yacht, a Princess 95MY made by British-based Princess Yachts, was possibly a recent purchase, in which Kim made the 10-day official tour, according to NK News.
The Washington-based NK News website gave no evidence of when the boat was bought.
North Korea is banned from importing luxury goods under layers of UN sanctions imposed for its nuclear and missile tests.
