  • 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.

"I would definitely have taken that before the race," said Hamilton.

  • 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.

  • 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.
