and why this song is breaking more records.

First to the big argument between the United States

:00:31.:00:32.

of America and North Korea, a country in the east of Asia.

:00:33.:00:36.

And, to careers, warships, missiles and threats. What is going on and is

:00:37.:00:54.

it as scary as it sounds? Let's start with the two careers. One

:00:55.:00:58.

country is called North Korea and the other, South Korea. They were

:00:59.:01:04.

split into Mac after World War II fought a war with each other shortly

:01:05.:01:07.

after that and haven't gotten along since. And now the two men? One is

:01:08.:01:14.

the leader of North career. He is Kim Jong Un and he runs the country

:01:15.:01:19.

just like his dad and grandad before him. The other is Donald Trump.

:01:20.:01:26.

President of the US app. A country which has supported South Korea for

:01:27.:01:30.

along time. North Korea is a country that has cut itself off from the

:01:31.:01:35.

rest of the world. Lots of things are run in secret there and Kim has

:01:36.:01:41.

huge control over people's lives. He has also been trying to build

:01:42.:01:46.

nuclear missiles, powerful bombs that can cause devastating damage,

:01:47.:01:51.

that one day might be able to hit the USA. President Trump wants to

:01:52.:01:53.

stop this happening and he's given a warning. North Korea is best not

:01:54.:02:01.

make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire

:02:02.:02:07.

and fury like the world has never seen. In return, North Korea has

:02:08.:02:13.

threatened US military bases in the area. So all of this is pretty

:02:14.:02:18.

worrying too many people around the world. But there have been many

:02:19.:02:23.

arguments between the USA and North Korea in the past. And although

:02:24.:02:29.

they've never been friends, things have been worked out to stop a war.

:02:30.:02:33.

Everyone is hoping that will be the case this time as well.

:02:34.:02:35.

If you've been watching the World Athletics Championships,

:02:36.:02:37.

you'll have heard of this guy - Botswana's Isaac Makwala.

Two days ago, he was one of a number of athletes

:02:41.:02:44.

affected by a stomach bug, and was stopped from

:02:45.:02:46.

competing in the 400 metres, for medical reasons.

:02:47.:02:49.

He's now been given the chance to run the 200 metres on his own.

:02:50.:02:53.

Roared on by the crowd, he qualified, booking

:02:54.:02:55.

I wish to thank the IAAF for giving me another chance.

:02:56.:03:02.

I just want to thank this crowd - it's so amazing.

:03:03.:03:12.

And Mo Farah will be going for gold again on Saturday,

:03:13.:03:15.

after he qualified for the final of the 5,000 metres last night.

:03:16.:03:18.

He'll be joined by fellow Brit Andy Butchart,

:03:19.:03:20.

after he qualified as a fastest loser from the second heat.

:03:21.:03:25.

Mo says he's worked hard for what he's achieved,

:03:26.:03:27.

and encourages people to do the same.

:03:28.:03:35.
