Maria, who turned 7 in April, arrived in the US from Guatemala with her mother in August 2017.

The Trump-Kim summit is still on schedule to take place next week. Of course, it's been huge news here in the US. But how is the state-controlled news media covering the story inside North Korea?

Also, a Swedish journalist has done some new work about a subject still considered a source of shame in so many places around the globe: menstruation.
