    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A North Korean missile launch likely failed on Tuesday, according to South Korea's military, the latest in a string of high-profile failures that somewhat tempers recent worries that Pyongyang was pushing quickly toward its goal of a nuclear-tipped missile that can reach America's mainland. South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported that the missile was a powerful mid-range Musudan. If true, that would make it the fourth failed attempt by the North to conduct a successful test launch of the new missile, which could potentially reach far-away U.S. military bases in Asia and the Pacific. Yonhap, citing an unidentified government source, said the missile exploded at a mobile launch pad as soon as a lau

    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A special verification commission on Monday recommended throwing out the disputed results of Haiti's first-round presidential election because it appeared to be tainted by significant fraud. Commission President Pierre Francois Benoit said there were far too many "zombie votes" and other problems in the Oct. 25 presidential balloting to be considered legitimate. He said some tally sheets from polling stations had fingerprints that appeared to be from a single person. "We recommend that the presidential election be done over," Benoit said on the grounds of the National Palace, where the commissioners handed over their report to Haiti's interim president.
