SONY PICTURES UPDATE: ‘ NORTH KOREA PROPOSES JOINT INVESTIGATION WITH US INTO CYBER-ATTACK ‘

#AceWorldNews – NORTH KOREA:Dec.21 – North Korea proposed a joint investigation with the U.S. into the hacking attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment, warning of “serious” consequences if Washington rejects a probe that it believes would prove Pyongyang had nothing to do with the cyber-attack.

The proposal was seen by analysts as a typical ploy by the North to try to show that it is sincere, even though it knows the U.S. would never accept its offer for a joint investigation.

The hackers who hit Sony Pictures Entertainment days before Thanksgiving crippled the network, stole gigabytes of data and spilled into public view unreleased films and reams of private and sometimes embarrassing executive emails.

One month later, the Obama administration confirmed what many had suspected:

The North Korean government was behind the punishing breach. U.S. officials are promising a response, unspecified so far.

YEMEN: ‘ GOVERNMENT IS SET TO BE SWORN INTO POWER DESPITE GPC OPPOSITION ‘

#AceWorldNews – YEMEN – Nov.09 – A new Yemeni government is set to be sworn in Sunday, despite opposition from the General People’s Congress (GPC), the ruling party in the country’s parliament led by former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, and the Houthis, a powerful Shia rebel group that controls much of south Yemen.

After President Abdrabuh Mansur Hadi announced his new government on Friday, the Houthis and GPC rejected it, with Saleh criticizing it as “unrepresentative.” GPC leaders announced they would pull their members out of the new cabinet, and have ousted President Hadi from the party leadership.

Saleh, who is thought to have tacitly supported the Houthi insurgency, accused Hadi of soliciting UN sanctions against him and two Houthi leaders for attempting to destabilize the country.

After seizing the capital, Sanaa, in September, the Houthis demanded that Hadi appoint a new government, criticizing the regime for its close cooperation with a conservative Sunni Islamist party.

Meanwhile, sectarian violence between Houthis and Sunni Al-Qaeda militias continues to ravage the country.

On Saturday, Al-Qaeda took responsibility for killing dozens of Houthis in twin attacks in central Yemen.
