Pyongyang will cast a decidedly dark shadow over U.S. defense secretary’s first trip overseas. Mattis is to make his debut with a visit to staunch U.S. allies South Korea and Japan, both of which host tens of thousands of American troops and, for good reason, see North Korea as their biggest national security threat.

Jordanians chant slogans to show their support for the government against terror as they were waiting for Jordan's King Abdullah II, returning from the U.S., at Queen Alia Airport in Amman, Wednesday. King Abdullah II rushed home Wednesday, cutting short a U.S. trip, to rally public support for even tougher strikes against the Islamic State group after the militants released a video showing the captured Jordanian pilot being burned to death in a cage.
