• Sun rises 'beautifully' on Philippines ties: China envoy

    Relations between China and the Philippines are improving "beautifully" under President Rodrigo Duterte, Beijing's envoy has said as Duterte warms to China and Russia following US criticism of his bloody war on crime. Ambassador Zhao Jianhua offered effusive praise for Duterte in a speech at an embassy reception late Tuesday, saying China "firmly supports" his anti-drugs campaign that has prompted Western condemnation of alleged extrajudicial killings. Duterte has rejected the criticism, including by long-time security ally the United States, and said he would seek closer economic ties with China and Russia.

  • Soccer: "Silly" Allardyce says error of judgment led to shock exit

    By Alan Baldwin LONDON (Reuters) - An emotional and apologetic Sam Allardyce headed for the airport on Wednesday, blaming entrapment for his shock exit as England manager but recognizing that an error of judgment had led to his downfall. The 61-year-old, who told reporters outside his home in northern England that he was going abroad "to chill out and reflect", refused to rule out an eventual return to soccer. Blasted by the media for hubris and greed, Allardyce was shown the door by England on Tuesday for seeking a lucrative sideline role while talking to undercover reporters from Britain's Daily Telegraph.

    Rescuers in Indonesia were dispatched Wednesday to evacuate nearly 400 tourists, most of them foreigners, after a volcano erupted at one of the country's most popular hiking destinations, an official said. Mount Barujari began erupting late Tuesday afternoon, sending columns of ash and smoke shooting 2 kilometres (1.2 miles) into the sky over Lombok island, a tourist hotspot to the immediate east of Bali. Nearly 400 people were recorded as hiking near Barujari -- a smaller cone within the crater of Mount Rinjani -- when it began erupting, prompting plans for their immediate evacuation, said national disaster agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho.
