• Philippines' Duterte defiant over 'slaughter' call

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte refused to back down Saturday over his stated desire to slaughter millions of people, as global condemnation built against him likening his crime war with Hitler's efforts to exterminate Jews. Facing a fierce international backlash, Duterte's spokesman released a statement insisting the president did not want to be compared with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler but confirmed he was prepared to kill three million people in his crime war. "We do not wish to diminish the profound loss of six million Jews in the Holocaust," presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said in a statement.

  • Conte doesn't have magic solution for Chelsea woes

    Antonio Conte admits he doesn't have an instant answer for the problems that have plagued his spluttering Chelsea team in recent weeks. Chelsea have only one clean sheet in 15 matches in all competitions ahead of Saturday's Premier League trip to Hull, when they will again be without injured captain and key defender John Terry. Until the January transfer window opens, Conte knows he has to make do with the current squad, many of whom are once again underachieving after their dismal 10th-place finish last season.

  • Samsung slammed by Chinese state TV over Note 7 recall 'discrimination'

    By Sijia Jiang HONG KONG (Reuters) - Chinese state broadcaster CCTV has slammed South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics Co for what it said was "discrimination" against China consumers in its handling of a global recall of Galaxy Note 7 smartphones to replace batteries. In a commentary piece posted on its website on Thursday evening, CCTV said Samsung's behavior in China after the Sept. 2 recall of 2.5 million phones was "full of arrogance". CCTV said a video apology Samsung issued to U.S. consumers, along with various replacement options and compensation, was in stark contrast to its treatment of those in China, where the company issued a brief statement saying most phones didn't need to be replaced.

"Petronas reiterates that, together with the project partners, it will study the conditions that come with the approval and conduct a total review of the project prior to making a decision on the next steps forward," the company said in a statement on Saturday.

  • Zara owner Ortega buys $550 million Madrid skyscraper

    Amancio Ortega, Europe's richest man and founder of global fashion group and Zara owner Inditex (ITX.MC), has bought one of Madrid's most famous skyscrapers for 490 million euros ($551 million) through his property investment arm, a source said. The purchase marks another step in the famously-reclusive billionaire' s strategy to build a property empire through Pontegadea Inmobiliaria, one of the biggest property companies in Spain, and his holding company Pontegadea Inversiones. The source said late on Friday that Pontegadea Inmobiliaria had bought the tower from Abu Dhabi tycoon Khadem al-Qubaisi, whose fund had exercised a last-minute purchase option from Spanish lender Bankia (BKIA.MC), its previous owner.
