  • Break the vicious cycle, Singapore tells S.China Sea rivals

    By Rujun Shen and David Alexander SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Singapore's prime minister called on countries on Friday to break the "vicious cycle" of the South China Sea row, as the United States and China exchanged increasingly angry barbs over reclaimed islands in the disputed waterway.

  • One of worst days in FIFA history, says Figo

    By Mike Collett ZURICH (Reuters) - The date of May 27 will go down as one of the worst days in the history of world soccer's governing body FIFA, former presidential candidate Luis Figo said on Thursday.

The Congress and the election are both expected to go ahead as scheduled despite Wednesday's dramatic twin-pronged assault by the United States Department of Justice and the Swiss Attorney general's office which saw the arrest and detention of senior FIFA officials on a multitude of corruption charges.
