  • Malaysia PM slams corruption report as part of "political sabotage"

    By Praveen Menon KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Prime Minister Najib Razak slammed a newspaper report that said investigations into troubled state fund 1MDB have traced nearly $700 million of deposits into accounts that allegedly belonged to him, claiming it was a "continuation of political sabotage". The Wall Street Journal's report, if true, would be the first time the beleaguered prime minister has been directly linked to accusations of corruption surrounding the fund. "There have been concerted efforts by certain individuals to undermine confidence in our economy, tarnish the government, and remove a democratically elected prime minister," Najib's office said in a statement on his Facebook page.

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday.

  • Angry EU leaders lash out at Greece, eyeing endgame

    While this criticism reflects frustration with the negotiating tactics of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and his radical leftist Syriza government, it may also be part of a strategy to manage public opinion before the endgame of the crisis, experts say. Outspoken European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker is the most senior figure to lay his emotions bare. The tipping point for former Luxembourg premier Juncker, Tsipras's strongest EU supporter in five months of talks, seems to have come when, according to the EU, Greece walked away on the verge of a deal late Friday.

  • 1,400 India school teachers resign in fake degree probe

    Some 1,400 primary school teachers have quit in an eastern Indian state in recent months amid an ongoing investigation into fake qualifications, an education official said Friday. More resignations are likely before the end of an amnesty period that allows teachers in Bihar to quit to avoid legal action for falsifying their degrees, state education department principal secretary R.K Mahajan said. The High Court ordered an investigation in May into the state's 350,000 primary teachers on concerns that up to 25,000 had joined government schools without proper training.

  • Communist millions for China's official Christians

    Chinese priest Lin Xiuqiang is pleased with his new Catholic church, its tall tower topped with a cross -- and grateful to the Communist officials who paid $19 million to build it. China's Christians are divided between state-run churches which pledge allegiance to the officially atheist Communist party, and "underground" congregations who maintain their independence. Dozens of church buildings have been demolished and crosses removed in recent months, in what has been seen as a tougher approach by the ruling party towards China's Christians, estimated at around 70 million and growing.

  • Could searchers' sonars have missed wreckage of Flight 370?

    Amid rising frustrations over the expensive, so-far fruitless search for vanished Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, experts are questioning the competence of the company in charge, including whether crews may have passed over the sunken wreckage without even noticing. There are also calls for the government to release the growing mountain of sonar data collected so far, which skeptics say could show whether searchers have overlooked holes in the dragnet big enough to conceal a fragmented Boeing 777. "It strikes me as odd that you're hiring a company that doesn't have the assets, doesn't have the track record," said Steven Saint Amour, an aircraft recovery expert based in Annapolis, Maryland.

    Japanese consumers are used to paying through the nose for fruit, and now the summer's here there's another way for them to empty their wallets: cube and heart-shaped watermelons. Over at the Shibuya Nishimura luxury fruit shop in downtown Tokyo, a cube-shaped watermelon, about the size of a baby's head, sells for 12,960 yen ($105). "They should be displayed as ornaments, maybe mixed with flowers." Farmers plant young watermelons inside acrylic containers to get the desired shape.

  • The case for Greece: when it forgave Germany's debt

    The International Monetary Fund certainly thinks so, according to a new report in which it argues Greece should get help. After the hell of World War II, the Federal Republic of Germany — commonly known as West Germany — got massive help with its debt from former foes. The 1953 agreement, in which Greece and about 20 other countries effectively wrote off a large chunk of Germany's loans and restructured the rest, is a landmark case that shows how effective debt relief can be.
