Mattis: US will stop North's missile attacks
Moon has repeatedly urged North Korea not to "cross the red line" but had not previously elaborated what that would constitute. Dunford and his Japanese counterpart Katsutoshi Kawano agreed to work together to strengthen missile defense systems.

"Wednesday night's act of vandalism made clear that the turmoil and turbulence of recent months do not stop at Duke's gates. Together-and only together-we will determine an appropriate course of action informed by our collective values". The march did not happen, but the Sheriff's Office had alerted comunity leaders to the possibility based on information it had gathered throughout the week.

In his statement, Price said he is creating a commission "to assist us in navigating the role of memory and history at Duke".

The vandalism follows a wave of removed Confederate statues and monuments - both at the behest of local governments, and as a result of criminal property damage - following a white supremacist rally over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia ostensibly planned to protest the removal of a statue of Lee from a park.

A fresh debate over Confederate symbols has roiled the U.S. since Saturday's violence during a protest by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, against the removal of a Lee statue in which one woman died.

The university also plans to explore various aspects of its history over the next year through exhibitions, conversations and forums. Further information about these programs will be forthcoming.

"As part of the Duke community, the Chapel welcomes a broad process of communal discernment about our stewardship of this building-as well as our care for the people who enter it".
