Three North Koreans wanted to defect after they were rescued from a small fishing boat which had drifted into South Korean waters off the east coast Authentic Devin Funchess Jersey , officials said Tuesday.

A South Korean coastguard vessel rescued four fishermen and a farmer from North Korea last Saturday after their boat was found drifting across the sea border, the South's unification ministry said.

Three of them expressed a desire to stay in the South when they were picked up near the eastern island of Ulleung, while the others wanted to return home, it said in a statement.

Seoul has sent a message to Pyongyang, suggesting it would send home the two who called for repatriation through the border truce village of Panmunjom, ministry officials said.

But the North has rejected the South's offer Authentic Shaq Thompson Jersey , insisting all five should be sent home, they said.

North Korea and South Korea have a disputed maritime boundary, and encroachment by North Korean fishing vessels into waters claimed by the South is quite common.

South Korea's policy is to allow North Korean fishermen crossing into what it considers its waters to decide whether or not to return to the North.

Seoul repatriated two North Korean fishermen rescued off the east coast in February and five others last month after investigators confirmed their wish to return home.

The North usually sends home South Korean fishermen rescued in its waters, although some have been held there against their will.

On June 15, a 19-year-old North Korean soldier defected to the South through the demilitarised zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas, which remain technically at war.

The DMZ Authentic Daryl Worley Jersey , despite its name, is one of the world's most heavily militarised frontiers, bristling with watchtowers and landmines.

So far about 28,000 North Koreans have resettled in the South since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.

Hillary Clinton's "What Happened" had a big debut.

Clinton's book, about her stunning presidential election loss in 2016 to Donald Trump, sold more than 300 Authentic James Bradberry Jersey ,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The book's hardcover sales of 168,000 were the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen's "No Easy Day Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey ," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week.

Sales for "What Happened" far exceeded the first-week numbers of more than 100,000 copies for Clinton's book about her years as secretary of state, "Hard Choices," which came out in 2014 as she was preparing to launch her run for president. "What Happened" has been at or near the top of the Amazon best-seller list since its publication Sept. 12 despite a suspicious early wave of negative reader reviews, likely posted by commentators who had not read the book and later pulled by Amazon.

"The remarkable response to 'What Happened' indicates that, notwithstanding all that has been written and discussed over the last year Authentic Taylor Moton Jersey , there is clearly an overwhelming desire among readers to learn about and experience, from Hillary Clinton's singular perspective, the historic events of the 2016 election," Simon & Schuster CEO Carolyn Reidy said in a statement. "In its candor and immediacy, 'What Happened' is satisfying that demand."

Clinton's all-time opening was for her memoir, "Living History Authentic Curtis Samuel Jersey ," a 2003 release that included her first extended comments on the affair between her husband, President Bill Clinton, and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. "Living History" sold more than 600,000 copies in its first week and came out before the rise of e-books and before the collapse of the Borders superstore chain and the struggles of Barnes & Noble weakened the hardcover market.

Clinton, a Democrat, had promised to let her "guard down" for her first book to come out when she was neither in government nor seeking office. Responses to "What Happened Daryl Williams Jersey ," as with so much of Clinton's political career, have varied widely. Some contended that it was time to "move on" from the elections. Others countered that as the first woman nominated by a major political party she had a vital story to tell and an audience eager to hear about it. Reviewers have called "What Happened" everything from boring and self-serving to revelatory and poignant.

On Oct. 1, "What Happened" will debut at No. 1 on The New York Times' best-seller lists for hardcover and for combined e-book and hardcover. According to Simon & Schuster, the book set a company record for weekly digital audio sales and sold more e-book editions in a week than any nonfiction release from the publisher since Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs in 2011.

BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- The State Council said Wednesday that it would step up efforts to expand employment.

"China should encourage entrepreneurship and innovation to create jobs, and help key groups such as college graduates find employment opportunities Russell Shepard Jersey ," according to a statement issued after a State Council executive meeting presided over by Premier Li Keqiang.

"Facing economic downward pressure in recent years, China has made employment a top priority and taken more proactive employment policies, which helped the country add more than 13 million urban jobs every year," the statement said.

It said that demand for jobs was still high and there remained many structural problems, which called for increased effort to improve employment.

Entrepreneurship and innovation should be encouraged to create jobs.
