  • Drug users aren't human, says Philippines' Duterte

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who is waging a bloody war on crime, has justified the large-scale killing of drug users by suggesting the victims were not human. Duterte, who has seen about two thousand people killed since he was elected in May, made the remarks late Friday as he shrugged off the United Nations' concerns over human rights in his country. "You cannot wage a war without killing," Duterte said, adding that many drug users were beyond rehabilitation.

  • Rosberg wins Belgian GP but Hamilton fights back

    Nico Rosberg rekindled his world championship ambitions with victory in Sunday's chaotic crash-hit Belgian Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton staged an astonishing fightback to finish third. Rosberg's delight was reduced by his Mercedes team-mate Hamilton's damage-limiting and thrilling drive to finish behind Daniel Ricciardo, second in a Red Bull, after starting from the back row of the grid. "I would definitely have taken that before the race," said Hamilton.

  • Football: Man City on top as Baggies and Boro struggle

    Manchester City were left top of the Premier League heading into the international break following a 3-1 win at home to West Ham United on Sunday. While there was plenty of excitement at Eastlands, the same could not be said of Sunday's earlier clash between two of the league's lesser lights as West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough played out a dispiriting goalless draw at The Hawthorns. Raheem Sterling may have become the poster boy for England's woeful Euro 2016 campaign, which culminated in the embarrassment of a defeat by Iceland, but there was no denying the City forward's class as he scored twice against the Hammers at Eastlands.

  • Trump's border wall plan is unrealistic and useless, experts say

    Even as Donald Trump vacillates between toning down his harsh anti-immigrant rhetoric and reaching out to minorities, he remains unshakable on one central campaign promise: building a wall on America's southern border with Mexico. "We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities," the Republican presidential candidate said as he accepted his party's nomination last month. "Mexico!" his energized supporters roared back.

The 18-year-old -- one of the rare successes under Mourinho's predecessor Louis van Gaal, scoring eight times last term -- played only a peripheral role in England's disastrous Euro 2016 campaign making two tardy substitute appearances.

  • As Obama heads to Laos, signs of a tilt away from China

    By Marius Zaharia VIENTIANE (Reuters) - The secretive communist government of Laos, a country with a population of less than 7 million, rarely causes a ripple on the diplomatic circuit. Barack Obama will be among them, making the last push of his presidency to 'rebalance' Washington's foreign policy towards Asia, a strategy widely seen as a response to China's economic and military muscle-flexing across the region. The might of Laos' giant neighbour to the north is hard to miss in Vientiane: wealthy Chinese driving SUVs overtake tuk-tuks sputtering along the roads and Chinese-backed hotels sprout from noisy construction sites in one of Asia's most low-rise cities.
