North and South Korea signed a joint military agreement early Wednesday that lessens the threat of conflict between the two countries and brings them closer to lasting peace.

CNN reports, “‘The era of no war has started,’ South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced at a joint news conference alongside North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang Wednesday. ‘Today the North and South decided to remove all threats from the entire Korean Peninsula,’ Moon said.”

North Korea agreed to permanently shut down the Dongchang-ri engine testing and missile launching site as part of the agreement, as well as destroy the Yongbyon nuclear site that is set up to produce material for nuclear weapons, if the U.S. would agree to take “corresponding measures.”

Iowa State Mourns Death of Champion Golfer 

Iowa State University and golfers around the world are mourning the death of 22-year-old Celia Barquin Arozamena, whose body was found on a golf course Monday. Collin Daniel Richards, who authorities say was homeless and had a history of violence, has been arrested and charged with her murder.

Iowa State Athletic Director Jamie Pollard issued a statement that read, in part, “Celia had an infectious smile, a bubbly personality and anyone fortunate enough to know her was blessed.”

She was the 2018 Big 12 champion and the Iowa State Female Athlete of the Year last year. The school plans to hold a vigil for Arozamena on campus tonight.
