Credit: Reuters/Carlos Jasso PANAMA CITY (Reuters) - Panama is freeing most of the 35 North Korean crew members it detained more than four months ago for smuggling Cuban weapons aboard a ship, a senior government official said on Wednesday. Tomas Cabal, head of the anti-terrorism section of Panama's Foreign Ministry, said 32 of the crew of the Chong Chon Gang would be freed and should leave the country by Thursday.

However, the state prosecutor for organized crime, Nathaniel Murgas, later told reporters that his office was still analyzing the North Korean authorities' request to release the men. <br>More: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/28/us-panama-northkorea-idUSBRE9AQ13X20131128?feedType=RSS







North Korea agrees fine with Panama for ship's release

"It has been decided to pay the fine within the next 15 days," said Berrios, noting that three North Korean diplomats were making arrangements to obtain the money and settle the matter with the Panama Canal Authority.

Panama's foreign ministry said Wednesday it would release 32 of the 35 sailors upon payment of the fine. <br>More: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/north-korea-agrees-fine/904882.html

The SEC had the most players selected in the 2013 NFL draft. Recruits see this, and they want to play against the top competition and where they will have the best shot of making the NFL. This has resulted in the SEC dominating the recruiting rankings. Whether you trust in the rankings or not, the fact that so many SEC programs are getting their top choices at each position has to be a good sign. With the advent of the SEC Network in 2014, the SEC program will receive even more television revenue. This will result in the SEC programs having more money to hire the top coaches and build the best facilities.

If you coach at A&M, you can have one loss on your record and still make the playoffs. <br>Read more: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1866840-texas-am-football-5-reasons-kevin-sumlin-is-going-to-stay
