DPRK holds military parade to mark 60th anniversary of Korean War Armistice
North Korea held a military parade marking the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice Agreement on Saturday.

Death toll in Egypt's overnight clashes rises to 75: Health Ministry

More than 740 others were injured.
However, medical reports from the field hospital at Rabia al- Adawiya Square, where Morsi's supporters have been staging an open- ended sit-in say at least 200 of the supporters were killed and over 4,500 injured in clashes with security men.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon has strongly condemned "the upsurge of violence" in Egypt following the latest protests, and urged the Egyptian people to "address their differences through dialogue."

Nearly 1,200 convicts have escaped from al-Kuifiya prison in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi.

Some of the escapees were recaptured by the police and security forces.
It is yet to be determined whether the incident is linked to the ongoing demonstrations in major Libyan cities.

Gov't reassures on world's tallest building construction
Local authorities have reassured critics of the planned world's tallest building in Changsha, central China, that there will be no substantial construction until the project goes through relevant legal procedures.
They say examination of the construction plans for the "Sky City" basic structure and its firefighting facilities, and application for official licenses are under way as required.
 Nine domestic construction experts have carried out a series of examinations on the project, including its structure and quake resistance.
A ground-breaking ceremony was held on July 20 for the 838-meter-tall tower. But it immediately sparked doubts on the project's safety, environmental concerns and construction speed.

China's June industrial profits up 6.3 pct
Major Chinese industrial firms saw their combined profits rise 6.3 percent year on year in June, slowing from the 15.5-percent rate seen in May.
An analyst with the National Bureau of Statistics says the drop in June industrial profits was mainly due to the slow-down in enterprise business revenue growth, higher costs and relatively higher base for the year-on-year comparison.
