A study led by the University of Exeter and the Natural History Museum discovered a previously unidentified parasite that was present in tadpole livers from six countries across three continents, in both tropical and temperate sites. Infectious disease is a significant factor in the decline of global frog populations, but it is still unclear whether the new parasite causes significant disease. [press release attached]

 2 yrs | N. Korean soldiers planted mine on border that injured 2 S. Korean soldiers, South alleges

              An explosion along the Korean Demilitarized Zone on August 4 that seriously injured two South Korean service members was caused by a mine that was secretly planted there by North Korean soldiers, South Korea's defense ministry alleges, warning the North that it will face an "equally pitiless penalty." South Korea said its investigation into the mine explosion near the city of Paju found that three North Korean wooden-box mines had been planted around a door that is guarded by the South Korean military and leads to the demilitarized zone. It is believed the mines were planted by North Korean soldiers who secretly crossed the military demarcation line in late July, though the devices did not explode until August 4. North Korea has yet to respond to the allegation.
