FILE - In this Friday, Aug. 1, 2014 file photo, North Korea's Deputy U.N. Ambassador Ri Tong Il speaks during a news conference at U.N. headquarters in New York. International pressure on North Korea began to mount early this year, when a groundbreaking U.N. report by a commission of inquiry laid out widespread abuses, including a harsh system of political prison camps of up to 120,000 people. The commission head, Michael Kirby, said the country's human rights situation "exceeds all others in duration, intensity and horror." Now the European Union and Japan have teamed up on a demand for the Security Council, the U.N.'s most powerful body, to follow the commission of inquiry's advice and refer North Korea's situation to the International Criminal Court.

Ron Barber D- Ariz., who also was wounded in the 2011 shooting, and Republican Martha McSally has grown tighter in the final weeks before the Nov. 4, 2014, elections, Giffords is playing more of a role by appearing in ads and raising money for her former aide and increasingly turning the race into a debate about guns.
