Chile's governing coalition splits ahead of November election

Senator Goic, Christian Democratic Party's presidencial candidate, is pictured inside the National Congress in ValparaisoChile's Christian Democrat party voted on Saturday to skip primaries and go straight to the first round of the presidential election in November, rupturing the center-left governing coalition and likely boosting the chances of a victory for the right.

People watch a TV broadcasting a news report on North Korea's missile launch, at a railway station in SeoulBy Jack Kim and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea test-fired a ballistic missile on Saturday shortly after U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that failure to curb Pyongyang's nuclear and ballistic missile programs could lead to "catastrophic consequences". U.S. and South Korean officials said the test, from an area north of the North Korean capital, appeared to have failed, in what would be the North's fourth straight unsuccessful missile test since March.
