Samsung's leader arrested on bribe
Samsung's stock price seems not affected by the arrest of the leader.
On the other hand, the South Korean special prosecutor is willing to indict Samsung leaders. The detention term will be expired soon. The investigative authority suspects Mr. Lee and his colleagues had made bribes to the president or her close friend, Choi Soon-sil, for expecting special support of the government in 2015. Samsung denied the suspicion.

North Korea's challenging missile launch
In addition to the missile launch, an assassination case is paid attention by many people in the world. Kim Jong-nam, a half-brother of Kim Jong-un, was murdered in Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia. It is suspected that several agents of North Korea are involved in his death. Malaysian police have arrested some suspects, guessing that Nim Jong-nam was killed by VX toxic substance.
