US says bilateral talks with North Korea possible
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration said Friday that one-on-one talks with North Korea, long resisted by the White House, are possible as part of a proposed six-nation discussion of North Korea’s nuclear weapons ambitions.
President Bush said he was hopeful the talks, which will feature a coalition of countries opposed to North Korea’s nuclear designs, will help persuade the communist state to dismantle its programs in a way that can be verified.
North Korea confirmed Friday it was willing to meet with the United States, South Korea, China, Japan and Russia.
Suicide truck bombing kills at least 33
ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia (AP) — A suicide bomber rammed a truck packed with explosives through the gates of a Russian military hospital near Chechnya on Friday, destroying the building and killing at least 33.
Seventy-six others were wounded in the attack, the latest in an upsurge of suicide bombings that have killed more than IOO people since May.
Russian authorities suspected Chechnya’s separatist rebels in the blast, which demolished the four-story red brick hospital in the city of Mozdok in Russia’s North Ossetia region.
Jobless rate dips as people leave workforce
WASHINGTON (AP) — The nation’s unemployment rate dipped to 6.2 percent in July, but businesses cut jobs for a sixth month in a mw, still wary despite signs the economy is on the mend. With jobs scarce, close to half a million people gave up looking.
The Labor Department’s report Friday suggested that the job market remains stubbornly sluggish, frustrating jobseekers on Main Street, discouraging investors on Wall Street and polarizing lawmakers in Washington as they look for a way to get the economy back to full throttle.
Employers chopped 44,000 jobs in July, which brought losses since January to 486,000. Economists had been saying the statistics might show positions had been added, perhaps as many as 10,000.
