  • Singapore activists condemn treatment of anti-Lee teen

    Prominent Singaporean intellectuals, artists and activists Saturday criticised the government's "harsh" treatment of a teenage boy behind online attacks on the late former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. In an open letter to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the former leader's son, the 77 signatories said they were "aware of the negative aspects" of 16-year-old Amos Yee's pronouncements in a YouTube video and on his blog. Yee was convicted in May on two criminal charges: wounding religious feelings in an expletive-laden video comparing Lee Kuan Yew to Jesus, and circulating an obscene cartoon of the former prime minister, who died in March.

  • Honeymoon is over for Greek couple who went penniless in NYC

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. In Greece, they generally pay in cash, which is preferred by businesses, but they were told to have cards for the U.S.

  • Greek villagers' secret weapon: Grow your own food

    Ilias Mathes has protection against bank closures, capital controls and the slashing of his pension: 10 goats, some hens and a vegetable patch. If Greece's financial crisis deepens, as many believe it must, he can feed his children and grandchildren with the bounty of the land in this proud village high in the mountains of the Arcadia Peloponnese. "I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage," he said, even though he can no longer access his full pension payment because of government controls imposed six days ago.

  • Italy no longer Greece's 'companion in misfortune': Renzi

    Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said Saturday that his country is no longer a "companion in misfortune" of debt-wracked Greece, as it was three or four years ago. "We need to stop calling Italy the sick man of Europe, because it's no longer true," Renzi told Italian television channel TG5, on the eve of Greece's crucial referendum which could determine the country's financial future and even its place in the eurozone. Renzi said that Italy is no longer afraid of the consequences of Greece's financial woes -- unlike during the 2011 crisis when fears were high of contagion spreading from the Greek crisis to many other heavily-indebted European nations.

  • Communist millions for China's official Christians

    Chinese priest Lin Xiuqiang is pleased with his new Catholic church, its tall tower topped with a cross -- and grateful to the Communist officials who paid $19 million to build it. China's Christians are divided between state-run churches which pledge allegiance to the officially atheist Communist party, and "underground" congregations who maintain their independence. Dozens of church buildings have been demolished and crosses removed in recent months, in what has been seen as a tougher approach by the ruling party towards China's Christians, estimated at around 70 million and growing.

  • Could searchers' sonars have missed wreckage of Flight 370?

    Amid rising frustrations over the expensive, so-far fruitless search for vanished Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, experts are questioning the competence of the company in charge, including whether crews may have passed over the sunken wreckage without even noticing. There are also calls for the government to release the growing mountain of sonar data collected so far, which skeptics say could show whether searchers have overlooked holes in the dragnet big enough to conceal a fragmented Boeing 777. "It strikes me as odd that you're hiring a company that doesn't have the assets, doesn't have the track record," said Steven Saint Amour, an aircraft recovery expert based in Annapolis, Maryland.

  • Holder Kvitova stunned by Jankovic at Wimbledon

    By Ken Ferris LONDON (Reuters) - Holder Petra Kvitova suffered a shock defeat by Serbia's former world number one Jelena Jankovic who rolled back the years to produce an inspired Centre Court display in the Wimbledon third round on Saturday. World number two Kvitova had breezed through her first two matches of the tournament but after taking the first set against 30-year-old Jankovic, the Czech made too many errors allowing the 28th seed to triumph 3-6 7-5 6-4. Kvitova, who won the Wimbledon title in 2011 as well as last year, was at a loss to explain how she had gone from a set and 4-2 up to losing a match that looked well within her control.
