Great to have you watching CNN STUDENT NEWS, your commercial-free source of current events for middle and high school classrooms. I'm Carl Azuz.We are starting this Wednesday with a headline out of North Korea. Yesterday, the secretive communist country released an American it had held prisoner since May.Jeffrey Fowle was accused of leaving a Bible at his hotel in North Korea. The country does have some churches, but they are operated by the government.And it's made independent religious activity illegal, because it's seen as a potential threat to that government's authority.Fowle arrived in the U.S. territory of Guam yesterday. Two other Americans, Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller are still being held prisoner in North Korea.And the U.S. government says it's still working to get them freed.Across the Pacific and halfway across the U.S., Ferguson, Missouri, a town that's been on edge since an incident on August 9.That's when a white police officer named Darren Wilson shot and killed an unarmed African-American 18-year old named Michael Brown.Witnesses said there was some sort of scuffle between the two, but that Brown was trying to surrender to the policeman when he was shot.Police said Brown struggled with Officer Wilson and then reached for the policeman's gun before the shooting.Protests started afterwards.Some peaceful, some violent. And not it's up to a grand jury to determine whether Officer Wilson should be charged with any wrongdoing.
