CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: Welcome to your midweek edition of CNN 10. I`m your host Carl
Azuz. We`re traveling all over Asia today and our first
story concerns a food shortage in North Korea. The countries population is just over 25 million
people and about 40 percent of them, we`re talking
about 10 million people could be going hungry in the months ahead if they`re not already.
The United Nations says North Korea has just had its
worst harvest in 10 years. There are a number of reasons why.
The U.N. blames drought, flooding and heat waves a combination of the three and the government
of the United States blames North Korea`s leadership as
well saying that if the communist country stops spending so much on its nuclear and
missile programs, its people wouldn`t be as starved and
neglected as they are. Is the current food shortage the beginning of a famine? The U.N.
isn`t calling it at this point. North Korea did suffer a
widespread famine in the mid 1990s` and it was a time when anywhere from several 100
thousand to several million people died. This year experts say
there are a number of troubling signs concerning food in North Korea but there are aid agencies
and countries willing to help.

PAULA HANCOCKS, CNN CORRESPONDENT: North Korean farmers prepare the land for rice planting,
a staple food in the country. This footage was filmed
last month by the United Nations World Food Program, one of the few aid groups allowed
to operate in North Korea. It is warning that recent
climate conditions mean 40 percent of the population are now in need of urgent food
assistance.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What is clear is that the (inaudible) drought, heat wave and floods
this year is badly impacting the crop production.
HANCOCKS: The report from WUFP and the U.N. Food and Agricultural Organization says those
most at risk are young children and pregnant women.
They warn of families being forced to cut meals or eat less. It`s a warning that`s being
heard at the highest levels. President Trump spoke by
phone to South Korean President Moon Jae-In last week and supported the South`s desire
to send humanitarian aide.
PRESIDENT MOON JAE-IN TRANSLATED: It would have the effect of cracking open the door
from the current stalemate in talks. President Trump
expressed the total support in that regard.
HANCOCKS: This despite North Korea`s suspected short range ballistic missile tests earlier
this month, a violation of U.N. resolutions. South
Korea`s Unification Ministry says they are working on a plan to send aid but no specifics
yet. For some experts concerns of food insecurity maybe
valid but the extent of the crisis is unclear.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Something bad is definitely happening. However we should also keep in
mind that food prices at free market, free food prices
are stable and its sort of does not agree with the idea of famine just about to erupt.
HANCOCKS: WFP has 11 supported food factories in North Korea and provides nutritional assistance
to some 770,000 malnourished women and children.
Its report is based on information gathered during the assessment in country last month
and in late 2018 but WFP does acknowledge some data is
provided by North Korea itself. Experts fear that could be open to manipulation. The U.S.
has been skeptical of humanitarian aid for North
Korea in the past because they say that Kim Jong-Un is perfectly capable of feeding his
own people he just chooses to divert millions of dollars into
his nuclear and missile program. But Trump`s softening of that stance could signal a return
to aid shipments as an incentive for Pyongyang to
come back to the negotiating table. Paula Hancocks, CNN, Seoul.

AZUZ: 10 Second Trivia. What is the only nation in the world that borders both Bangladesh
and Pakistan? Afghanistan, China, India, or Nepal.
Northwestern India borders Pakistan and Northeastern India borders Bangladesh.
The end is in sight for India`s marathon election. It began in early April and lasts more than
five weeks. Its carried out in several phases across
the world`s largest democracy and that`s why this is said to be the worlds largest democratic
exercise. The seventh and final stage of voting begins
on Sunday. Results are expected to be announced on May 23rd and that`s when the nations 1.3
billion people will know whether the incumbent prime
minister will remain in power or if India`s leadership will change.
India is a densely populated country. In land area, it`s a little over a third the size
of the United States but India`s eligible voters alone
number 900 million people. That`s almost three times the size of the U.S. population. In
addition to the challenges posed by an ongoing multi-phase
election, there are issues of misinformation in the information age that are causing confusion
and violence in the south Asian country.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: As India votes, a typical village scene in northern (inaudible). A post
lunch huddle about who might win. These men are
discussing the latest political news. Their main source, messages and posts on Facebook
and Whatapp.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE TRANSLATED: We only use Whatsapp and Facebook. That`s the internet
for us and with the election my phone is flooded with
political messages.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Almost everyone we`ve spoken to in this village has a phone and they`re
often relying on the messages they see there. The
politically themed videos and memes to decide who gets their vote. It`s their main source
of news. The electoral battleground, it`s in their hands
but the terrain is murky. Littered with fake news that can sometimes prove fatal. Authorities
here say fake rumors spread on Whatsapp which is owned
by Facebook triggered mob attacks that claimed more than a dozen lives in 2018.
Experts of Indian politics are worried during the elections, social media could be used
to divide communities or worse trigger political violence.
Facebook already under scrutiny after the 2016 U.S. presidential election, has set up
this election war room in California. Sitting in Silicon
Valley, these Facebook staffers are keeping a close eye on posts being seen by hundreds
of millions of Indian voters.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We`re certain to see a wide variety of different tactics that people
might be using to interfere with the elections. One of
those that we`ve been investing a lot in our capabilities around is video or audio that
might be altered, to not be truthful.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Indian police are also worried. This is just one of the many special
units set up to monitor social media around the clock.
And Whatsapp has launched a massive campaign to warn Indians about the threat of fake news.
With more than 200 million users, this is the apps
single biggest market. Back in (inaudible), the problem is clear. Voters say its often
hard to figure out which political message on social media is
real and which is fake.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (Inaudible). We can`t trust every message. We get a lot of fake messages.
We just don`t know what`s true.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Social media has become more than just a tool for mobilizing support,
its become a weapon for peddlers of misinformation and
voters like these often don`t know what to believe. (inaudible), CNN, (inaudible), India.

AZUZ: As we approach the 50th anniversary of when astronauts first walked on the moon,
U.S. President Donald Trump says he`s adding $1.6 billion to
NASA`s budget in addition to the $21 billion the agency`s already requested. The goal,
to get people back to the moon by 2024. If that
happens they could have less surface to stand on because the moon may be shrinking. Scientists
have been studying pictures of the moon`s surface
from NASA`s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, part of a half billion dollar mission that
was launched in 2009. Researchers say they`ve seen thousands
of cliffs scattered across the moons surface and that`s led them to believe that it`s slowly
been shrinking over time like the skin of a grape as it
shrinks into a raisin.
Scientists say this causes the moon`s crust to break and form the cliffs and that it also
causes moonquakes which aren`t called earthquakes because
moon. This has made the moon more than 160 feet skinnier according to scientists than
it was when someone last set foot there in 1972.
Some people think Starbucks is expensive. It ain`t got nothing on this cup of coffee
that`s being sold in a coffee house in San Francisco, California.
The place got hold of a coffee called \"Aleida Geisha 803\", a brew so illusive that only
100 pounds of it were recently sold at auction. A
single cup costs $75. A pound costs $800, it is the most expensive coffee in the world
and its said to taste smooth and like fruit. Of course you
could just eat fruit and avoid paying the \"coffee\".
Even some of the most fervent \"caffeines\" would lack the \"caffunds\" or feel like they`ve
been \"roasted\" when \"dripping\" a \"robustive sum\" of \"alotte\"
dollars. All \"ariba\" because the \"beans\" were too \"arareacono\" to be spilled. Some may be
pressed to \"macchiato\" more money and \"filter\" the
funds through the coffee shop. Others would \"cappacinoway\" for that to \"mocha sense\".
