SEOUL Authentic Josh Anderson Jersey , July 23 (Xinhua) -- Hyundai Motor's second-quarter operating profit tumbled due to the relative strength of the South Korean currency compared with its peers of Japan and other emerging currencies, the company said on Thursday.

Operating profit sank 16.1 percent from a year earlier to 1.75 trillion won (1.5 billion U.S. dollars) in the second quarter. It was roughly in line with market expectations, marking the profit reduction for five straight quarters.

Revenue rose 0.3 percent from a year earlier to 22.82 trillion won in the second quarter, but net profit plunged 24 percent to 1. 79 trillion won.

Global auto sales fell 2.8 percent to 1,232,943 in the cited period as competition got fiercer amid the weakness of the Japanese yen and other emerging currencies.

The South Korean won depreciated to the U.S. dollar, but the yen and the euro weakened more sharply than the won versus the greenback.

Hyundai decided to pay interim dividend worth about 270 billion won, planning to raise the dividend payout ratio to 15 percent in the short term and to as high as 30 percent over the long run.

For the first six months of this year, Hyundai posted an operating profit of 3.34 trillion won on 43.76 trillion won of revenue. Those were falls of 1.4 percent and 17.1 percent each on a yearly basis.

Hyundai sold 2,415,777 vehicles in the first half, down 3.2 percent from a year earlier. Domestic car sales declined 3 percent to 335,364 units, with overseas auto sales falling 3.2 percent to 2,080,413 units.

The company forecast that hard business conditions would continue in the second half due to sluggish growth of the global economy, uncertainties in Europe and the expected interest rate increase in the United States.

Hyundai planned to roll out new models to overcome the difficulties, keeping its auto sales target of 5.05 million units this year.(1 U.S. dollar equals 1,161.8000 won)

BUJUMBURA, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Former Burundian Intelligence Chief Lieutenant General Adolphe Nshimirimana was killed in an ambush at Kamenge neighborhood in the capital Bujumbura, a senior adviser at the Office of the Burundian president told Xinhua.

"Lieutenant General Adolphe Nshimirimana has died in an attack," said Willy Nyamitwe, senior adviser in charge of communication at the Burundian president's office.

Witnesses said several men in military uniforms bombed his car with a mortar shell at 9:00 a.m. local time (0700 GMT).

Nshimirimana was working at the Office of Burundian President Pierre Nkurunziza and was in charge of missions.

Nshimirimana was known to have played a key role in neutralizing protests against President Nkurunziza's third term bid from late April to June.


MEXICO CITY, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) -- No major celebration in Mexico, whether a wedding or anniversary, birthday or graduation, is complete without a boisterous eight to 10-member mariachi band belting out a few traditional ranchero songs as guests sing along.

While it's an unlikely place for a celebration, the municipal graveyard in Dolores Hidalgo, a small town in central Mexico's Guanajuato state, is the very place people see a group of mariachis making music.

The ""undisputed king"" of ranchero music, singer-songwriter Jose Alfredo Jimenez, is buried here, and on any given day, a local or visiting mariachi band serenades his gravesite to the delight of the Mexican and international fans who have come to pay their respects.

Born in 1926 into a relatively well to do family in Dolores Hidalgo that fell on hard times following the death of his father, Jimenez struggled as a young boy. He barely completed elementary school and didn't study music or learn to play an instrument, but went on to become a musical legend, beloved in Mexico and abroad for his melodic tunes and moving lyrics of love and rejection.

Visiting the Jimenez museum and mausoleum are among the top 10 things to do in Dolores, at No. 3 and No. 8, respectively, according to travel planning website TripAdvisor.

""You have to go!"" a user identified as Leslie G wrote of visiting the tomb in September. ""I loved it. It gave me goosebumps... it's one of those moments that reminds you of the pride in being Mexican.""

That pride is keenly felt in his hometown: his music wafts out of restaurants and shops decorated with paintings of the singer -- who was twice declared to be Dolores' official favorite son -- his childhood home has been preserved and turned into a museum, and his mausoleum is a monument to both the man and the musical genre he helped to popularize.

Dwarfing all the other graves, the outsize tomb is built of thousands of colorful mosaic tiles to resemble the striped Mexican sarape, or wrap, Jimenez typically wore over his shoulder during his performances. Etched into the tiles are the names of some of his biggest hits. A giant sombrero, or wide-brimmed Mexican hat, rises over one end, above this immortal lyric from one of his many songs, ""Life isn't worth a thing.""

That line is typical of the kind of rousing lyrics Jimenez masterfully composed, mainly about falling in love and being spurned, in songs such as ""Ella"" (""Her""), ""Extraname"" (""Miss Me""), ""Cuando lloran los hombre"" (""When Men Cry""), ""Yo debi enamorarme de tu madre"" (""I Should Have Fallen in Love With Your Mother"") and the mariachi anthem ""El rey"" (""The King"") about a man being king of his castle, no matter what his socioeconomic status.

Here's a sample lyric: ""With or without moneyI always do what I wantAnd my word is the lawI have no throne or queenNor anyone to understand meBut I am still the king.""

The Jose Alfredo Jimenez Museum in downtown Dolores Hidalgo is a great place to soak up local atmosphere and learn about the alcohol-fueled life of the singer, whose knack for expressing the deepest sentiments of the Mexican male psyche.
