• Man describes find that could solve MH370 plane mystery

    SAINT-ANDRE, Reunion (AP) — Johnny Begue was out collecting stones on the French Indian Ocean island he calls home when he says he saw part of an airplane wing washed up in the sand.

Massive search efforts have failed to find any sign of the plane, and authorities are analyzing the piece to see if it matches the missing plane.

  • Dr M: Crime to even talk about 1MDB

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today declined to field questions on 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), pointedly saying that discussing the controversial firm could land the speaker in jail. Among the casualties were Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, who was replaced as deputy prime minister in a Cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday following an outburst over 1MDB last weekend.

  • Kit Siang: Only Abdul Gani can clear the air on ‘leaked’ charge sheets on Najib

    KUALA LUMPUR, July 31 ― Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail, who was removed as Attorney-General (AG) earlier this week, is the only person who can say for certain if he was in the final stages of drafting a charge against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang said today. Lim said recent denials by the new AG, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, and the AG’s Chambers of claims that his predecessor was preparing to charge Najib were “grossly inadequate”. “Let Gani appear in public to explain whether there is any basis in the Sarawak Report exclusive about the purported charge sheet against the prime minister for corruption as Gani is still in the legal and judicial service,” Lim said at a news conference here.
