  • Malaysian leader faces risk of criminal charges over fund

    Malaysia's prime minister is facing the risk of criminal charges over allegations that hundreds of millions of dollars were funneled from an indebted state fund to his personal bank accounts, the first time a Malaysian leader has faced criminal allegations. The country's attorney general confirmed late Saturday that he had received documents from an official investigation that made the link between Prime Minister Najib Razak and the investment fund 1MDB. The existence of the documents was first reported by The Wall Street Journal's Asia edition on Friday, showing some $700 million were wired from entities linked to the fund into Najib's accounts.

  • China lobbies hard ahead of Manila's South China Sea arbitration case

    By Greg Torode and Manuel Mogato HONG KONG/MANILA (Reuters) - China's claims to the disputed South China Sea will come under international legal scrutiny for the first time this week, but while Beijing has officially refused to take part in the case filed by the Philippines at a U.N. tribunal, it has made its presence felt. Indeed, Manila's international legal team was heading to the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague to initially argue that the five-judge panel has jurisdiction to hear the case, Philippine Foreign Ministry officials told Reuters. A little-noticed decision by the tribunal's panel in April acknowledged China's objections and announced that a hearing on jurisdiction from July 7-13 would be held first.

  • Chinese tourists boost Thai economy but stir outrage

    Accused of urinating in public, spitting on the street, or kicking a sacred temple bell -- free-spending Chinese tourists are receiving a mixed welcome as their soaring numbers help the kingdom's creaking economy. Last month it was a photo of a young girl peeing in the grounds of Bangkok's Grand Palace that triggered the latest round of enraged, and sometimes racist, comments as Thai social media users claimed she was Chinese. In March a Thai model's video of tourists from China jumping the queue at an airport was viewed more than two million times and saw a similarly angry rant against Thailand's largest group of foreign holidaymakers.

  • Chile image burnished after staging successful Copa

    By Rosalba O'Brien SANTIAGO (Reuters) - A well-organised soccer tournament where the stadiums were largely completed on time and the fans behaved -- Chile's hosting of the Copa America has burnished its credentials as Latin America's can-do country. With 12 nations taking part, holding the South American competition is not on the scale of the World Cup, but still provided logistical difficulties in a region where hooliganism has often dogged games. Defender Gonzalo Jara's bottom poke of Uruguay's Edinson Cavani earned him a two-match ban and unleashed a wave of Internet memes, while Arturo Vidal pranged his Ferrari after driving drunk.

  • Barcelona struggles with rising tide of tourists

    Tourists are vital to Barcelona's economy, but the 27 million people who visit each year have become a headache for the new mayor as she battles to save the iconic Spanish Mediterranean port from becoming a bland theme park. "Tourists go home" is frequently found painted on the walls of buildings in the centre of Spain's second-largest city, which is struggling to cope with a surge in tourism that started when it hosted the Olympics in 1992. The city of 1.6 million residents is now the third most visited in Europe after London and Paris, according to a 2013 study by Mastercard, and tourism contributes to 14 percent of Barcelona's economy.

    Lewis Hamilton jumped for joy on Sunday after steering his way through the capricious extremes of an English summe's afternoon, with the aid of two well-timed pit-stops, to secure a third win on home soil in a dramatic British Grand Prix. In front of a jubilant and wildly-enthusiastic crowd of more than 140,000, his well-judged win enabled him to increase his lead in this year's drivers' world championship as he led Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg home in treacherous and changeable conditions. "Thank you everyone for coming out today and making my weekend," said Hamilton, praising the fans.
