Phần tiếng Anh:

North Korea shocked the world last week with an announcement that the Pyongyang regime conducted its first ‘successful’ hydrogen bomb test. The United States and others quickly discounted the claim. South Korean intelligence officials and nuclear experts said that given the size of the explosion they seriously doubted it was a true hydrogen bomb. Still, UN and many world powers criticized North Korea’s move and South Korea said that it is in talks with the United States to deploy U.S. strategic weapons on the Korean peninsula.

Germany has been shocked in response to news of massive sexual assaults on women in the city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve. More than 120 criminal complaints have been filed by women who say they were robbed, molested, sexually assaulted, and in two reported cases, raped. Germany’s interior minister expressed shock at the attacks, and that they were committed by up to 1,000 perpetrators who appeared to be of “Arab or North African” origin. Although the nationalities and residency status of the perpetrators is officially unknown, the assaults have intensified the debate about Germany’s immigration policies.

Finally, an economic shock in China sent stocks around the world sharply down last week. In the U.S., the Dow Jones index had its worst four-day start to a year on record. Volatility in China’s stock market and further fall in oil prices have been unnerving investors. However, the U.S. economy ended last week on a positive note with the Department of Labor reporting a net gain of 292,000 jobs in December. That is a sign that the world’s largest economy is growing at a solid pace despite the global stock market turmoil.
