VOA Asia - China readies for its latest Communist Party Congress

Strict security measures have been put in place as China's Communist Party is set to host a high-level meeting in Beijing that will usher in a much-anticipated reshuffle of the ruling party's top leadership. Another surge of refugees make the trek from Myanmar to Bangladesh.

U.S. and Japanese diplomats agree on the need to be prepared for the worst if diplomacy with North Korea fails.
