Obama's stern words for Pyongyang in Seoul

Top Story: U.S. President Barack Obama's much-watched three-day trip to China ended with more of a whisper than a bang. Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao reportedly discussed a number of sensitive issues, including North Korea and the U.S. debt held in China.
