Asia McClain, Adnan Syed's only alibi witness, is finally coming forward and testifying. Syed's case, which was the focus of Serial season one, has been denied several appeals in the past, but the Maryland courts finally agreed to allow him to present new evidence for his release, including McClain's testimony. In 1999, Syed was accused of murdering his high school ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee. At the time, he claimed that he was at the library when police say Lee was being killed and even spoke with a classmate, Asia McClain. She originally refused to testify that she indeed saw him at the library back in 2000 when the defense lawyer first reached out to her. In an interview with ABC, she explains why she's choosing to come forward now:

"I was compelled by my children. Keeping that legacy, integrity, and stepping up to tell the truth was very important to me. I want my kids to know their mom was strong. I didn’t know what the temperament of the prosecutor was going to be. Just not knowing what to expect was a little fearful. I hope that enough information was presented to the judge for him to be able to make a rational decision. Whatever that might be, is in his hands.”

According to reports from a South Korean news agency, officials in North Korea have executed the army’s chief of staff. The reports say that Ri Yong Gil was executed because the regime of Kim Jong Un said he was guilty of charges of corruption and conspiracy. Since taking power, the dictator has somewhat routinely had fellow government leaders—even members of his own family—executed, often on somewhat ambiguous charges. Tensions in the region are especially elevated after the military successfully launched a long-range rocket over the weekend. Discuss
