On Sept. 21, the world watched in horror as multiple gunmen attacked the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The attack, which lasted four days, left hundreds of people injured and scores dead.
BOSTON – A prosecutor called James "Whitey" Bulger a "little sociopath" Wednesday as he urged a judge to sentence the infamous South Boston gangster to life in prison, but Bulger himself declined to speak.
"The defendant has committed one heinous crime after another," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Kelly. "The carnage that he has caused is grotesque."
Bulger, now 84, was convicted in August in a broad indictment that included racketeering charges in a string of murders in the 1970s and '80s, as well as extortion, money-laundering and weapons charges.
As many as 80 people were publicly executed in North Korea earlier this month, some for offenses as minor as watching South Korean movies or possessing a Bible.
South Korean newspaper JoongAng Ilbo reported that the so-called criminals were put to death in seven cities across North Korea on Nov. 3, in the first known large-scale public executions by the Kim Jong-un regime.
A source, who is familiar with internal affairs in the North and who recently visited the country, told the paper that about 10 people were killed in each city.
