North Korea has fired at least one unknown projectile, less than a week after it tested several short-range missiles, South Korea’s military says. The projectile was fired from the Sino-ri location north-west of the capital, Pyongyang, toward the east. The test is an attempt by the North to increase pressure on the US over its failure to make concessions in nuclear negotiations, analysts say. A top US envoy is in South Korea for talks on how to break the deadlock.


In other news,


A US teenager who took legal action against his school after he was banned for refusing the chickenpox vaccination now has the virus, his lawyer says. Jerome Kunkel, 18, made headlines last month after he unsuccessfully sued his Kentucky school for barring unimmunised students amid an outbreak. His lawyer, Christopher Weist, told US media that the teen’s symptoms developed last week. The student had opposed the vaccine on religious grounds. His lawsuit argued the vaccine is “immoral, illegal and sinful” and that his rights had been violated.


On this day in 1914, President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation that officially established the first national Mother’s Day holiday to celebrate America’s mothers.


The idea for a “Mother’s Day” is credited by some to Julia Ward Howe (1872) and by others to Anna Jarvis (1907), who both suggested a holiday dedicated to a day of peace. Many individual states celebrated Mother’s Day by 1911, but it was not until Wilson lobbied Congress in 1914 that Mother’s Day was officially set on the second Sunday of every May.
