Capitals’ Ovechkin keeps promise, scores goal for cancer survivor

Washington Capitals star forward Alex Ovechkin promised a 13-year-old cancer survivor that he would score a goal during Saturday’s game against Toronto.

Then the NHL superstar went out and scored three of them, in the Capitals’ 4-3 victory against the Maple Leafs.

When Ovechkin beat Maple Leafs goalie Curtis McElhinney at 12:43 of the first period, he gestured toward the stands at Air Canada Centre where he thought Alex Luey was sitting, NHL.com reported.

An hour earlier, the teenager was sitting on the Capitals bench when Ovechkin skated to him and promised to score a goal.

Ovechkin scored again before the first period ended and added the hat trick with nine seconds left in the third period.

Luey, a youth hockey player with the Niagara Falls Flyers, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma last year, NHL.com reported. He had part of his right leg amputated, but has returned to play thanks to a prosthesis.

When Sportsnet held its "Hometown Hockey" telecast in Niagara Falls on Oct. 8, hosts Ron MacLean and Tara Slone surprised Luey with a video message from Ovechkin, his favorite NHL player.

“Hi, Alex. It's your buddy Ovi,” Ovechkin said in the video. “I hear you're cancer-free. You're coming to the game in Toronto in November. I can't wait to meet you, so I'll see you there soon.”

On Saturday, with the Maple Leafs celebrating Hockey Fights Cancer, Luey's hockey dream came true.

In the locker room before the game, Ovechkin gave Luey a quick pep talk. He was invited to read the starting lineup to the players. Upon the mention of each name, the player gave a yell.

“That's the best pregame pep talk I've ever heard,” coach Barry Trotz told NHL.com. “I didn't have to do anything to get the guys fired up. It was all Alex.”

North Korean defector fears being sent back, has medical problems that stun doctors

The North Korean solider identified only as “Oh” who was shot multiple times as he fled Kim Jong Un’s regime for a life of freedom has not only been found to have medical issues doctors haven’t seen, but he’s also afraid that he’ll be sent back.

The 24-year-old soldier escaped two weeks ago after abandoning his post and making a run for it in an incident that was partially recorded.

Although Oh suffered multiple gunshot wounds during his escape, he is recovering. The thing he fears the most is being sent back to North Korea, the New York Post reported.

He has been assured that will not happen.

While surgeons were disturbed to discover that Oh also had tuberculosis and hepatitis B, the 10-inch parasitic worms they removed from his intestines took these doctors to uncharted territory, CNN reported.

“In my 20 years as a surgeon, I have only seen something like this in a medical textbook,” surgeon Lee Cook-Jong said. “He’s quite a strong man.”

The lead surgeon in South Korea said Oh is “not going to die” from his wounds, ABC News reported.

Doctors were also vexed by the raw corn kernels in Oh’s stomach, according to the Washington Post.

Officials in South Korea said that Oh’s escape took place two Mondays ago after the North Korean guard abandoned his post and tried to escape. CNN reported that this was the third defection of a North Korean soldier this year and that there had only been four such defections in the past five years.

“The defector was urgently transferred to hospital in a helicopter of the United Nations Command, and there was no exchange of fire with our side,” a South Korean ministry official told Reuters. “Since it was an area exposed to the North, we had to crawl toward there to get him out.”

ABC News also noted that it appeared North Korea violated the 1953 Armistice Agreement signed by the U.N., North Korea and China by firing guns across the military demarcation line (MDL) and by physically crossing the line.

Earlier Saturday, it was reported that Kim Jong Un has already “replaced” the border guards who fired on Oh but allowed him to escape.

North Korea replaces border soldiers after defection

After dramatic video surfaced of a North Korean guard defecting across the border into South Korea, Kim Jong Un’s government has replaced nearly all of the soldiers who were stationed at the site where the escape took place Nov. 13, CNN reported.

“North Korea replaced almost all of its troops, if not all, at the Joint Security Area for their failure to prevent the defection,” said Kim Young-woo, chairman of the South Korean National Assembly's defense committee. “It was obviously a part of punishment for failing their mission to deter the North Korean soldier's escape. North Korea has always punished those responsible for similar failures.”

North Korea, meanwhile, planted trees and dug a trench at a section of the Military Demarcation Line, according to Marc Knapper, the chargé d'affaires at the US Embassy in Seoul. Knapper tweeted a photo of dramatic video released by the United Nations Command on Wednesday. The video showed a North Korean soldier's daring dash to freedom while being fired upon by his former comrades.

After the defector's vehicle got stuck in a gutter close to the border, he jumped out and ran toward the South Korean side, CNN reported.

The 24-year-old soldier, known only by his last name -- Oh -- has regained consciousness after being shot and was undergoing treatment, CNN reported.

Oh is the third member of the North Korean armed forces to defect this year.

More than 40 bullets were fired at him from pistols and an AK-47 assault rifle, South Korea's military said last week. South Korean troops did not return fire.

Oh had lost more than 50 percent of his blood by the time he arrived by air at Ajou University Hospital, his surgeon Lee Cook Jong told reporters Wednesday.

The attack targeted Al Rawdah mosque in Bir Al-Abed, the Egyptian state-owned news agency MENA reported.

No group has claimed responsibility for the assault, so far.

State media showed images of bloodied victims and bodies covered in blankets inside the Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed, west of the city of El Arish.

“They were shooting at people as they left the mosque,” a local resident, whose relatives were at the scene, told Reuters. “They were shooting at the ambulances, too.”

Source: Mugabe granted immunity; safety in Zimbabwe ensured

Former President Robert Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and was assured that his safety in Zimbabwe would be protected, Reuters reported. The announcement was part of a deal that led to the 93-year-old’s resignation, sources told Reuters.

Mugabe, who had led Zimbabwe since its independence from Great Britain in 1980, resigned Tuesday after the army seized power and the ruling party turned against him. Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice president sacked by Mugabe earlier this month, is set to be sworn in as president on Friday.

A government source said Mugabe told negotiators he wanted to die in Zimbabwe and had no plans to live in exile, Reuters reported.

“It was very emotional for him and he was forceful about it,” said the source, who is not authorized to speak on the details of the negotiated settlement.

“For him it was very important that he be guaranteed security to stay in the country … although that will not stop him from traveling abroad when he wants to or has to,” the source told Reuters.
