• Clinton boosted by debate as candidates rally support

    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton jumped back onto the campaign trail Tuesday after a testy first head-to-head debate in which Clinton frequently forced her prickly opponent on to the back foot. In a snap CNN poll of 521 voters, 62 percent judged that Clinton had won the debate against 27 percent for Trump, with most mainstream political analysts agreeing Clinton was the stronger performer. Nate Silver, a respected election analyst at FiveThirtyEight.com, predicted a two to four percent bump in support for Clinton, after the most recent polls showed the race in a virtual dead heat.

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Monday he would seek closer economic ties with China and Russia, as the local currency and stock market extended declines following Western criticism of his deadly war on crime. The peso hit a seven-year low to the dollar on Monday and foreign investors pulled out from local shares for a 23rd straight day, which analysts said was due to growing uncertainty over Duterte's handling of what has been one of Asia's best-performing economies in recent years. "I will open trade alliances with Russia and China so all you other investors, just go.

  • S. Korea football coach Stielike warns Spurs star Son over attitude

    South Korea coach Uli Stielike has slammed the attitude of Son Heung-Min, despite the attacker earning rave reviews for his match-winning performances for Tottenham in the English Premier League (EPL). Stielike rebuked the 24-year-old Son, who has scored four goals in his last two league games as Tottenham rose to second in the English Premier League table, for his "problematic" behaviour. "As many people have already seen from the stands or on television, I think his behaviour away from the field can be problematic," warned Stielike Monday as he selected Son as his first-choice front man in a 23-man squad for World Cup qualifiers against Qatar and Iran next month.

  • Singapore urged to get tougher on money-laundering

    Singapore must take more aggressive action against complex cross-border money-laundering including prosecuting individuals and seizing illicit proceeds, a global financial crimes watchdog said Tuesday. The Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF) said in a review the city-state has made significant improvements in its anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing framework since the last assessment in 2008. It said, however, that Singapore needs to do more, especially in prosecuting bigger cases where the crime is committed in another country and the proceeds are laundered in Singapore, one of Asia's top financial centres.
