Methane is burned off in front of oil pump jacks in Watford City, N.D., on Oct. 22, 2015. In early July, a federal court blocked the Trump administration from delaying Obama-era rules aimed at reducing releases of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, from oil wells and refineries. The ruling was in response to one of scores of lawsuits filed against Trump’s environmental decisions since Jan. 22.

The UNC is responsible for policing the Demilitarized Zone accused North Korea of violating the armistice agreement when a soldier crossed the military demarcation line in pursuit of the defector.
