President Donald Trump, in a combative debut speech to the U.N. General Assembly, threatened the "total destruction'" of North Korea if it does not abandon its drive toward nuclear weapons.

Trump, who has ramped up his rhetoric throughout the escalating crisis with North Korea, told the murmuring crowd at the U.N. on Tuesday that "it is far past time for the nations of the world to confront" Kim Jong Un and said that Kim's "reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons" poses a threat to "the entire world with an unthinkable loss of human life."

A notorious 86-year-old jewel thief is out of jail but still faces legal trouble.

Drew Findling, a lawyer for Doris Payne, said that Payne was released Friday from the DeKalb County jail, just outside Atlanta.
