  • Malaysian central bank urged criminal prosecution of state fund 1MDB

    By Praveen Menon KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's central bank said on Friday it had urged the country's attorney general to begin criminal prosecution of troubled fund 1MDB after completing its investigation, piling more pressure on Prime Minister Najib Razak who chairs the fund's advisory board. At the centre of a political crisis over its debt of nearly 42 billion ringgit ($11.5 billion) and alleged financial graft, 1MDB is the subject of several probes by different authorities, including Malaysia's central bank. The central bank's statement comes just one day after the attorney general said it had seen a report of the central bank's investigation and concluded that 1MDB officials had not committed any offence.

  • Myth Busted: Conspiracy Theorists Do Believe Stuff 'Just Happens'

    The sheriff of Douglas County in Oregon where a mass shooting occurred on Oct. 2 is in hot water after the discovery that he posted a "Sandy Hook truther" video to Facebook in 2013. Contrary to popular opinion, the research finds, people who think conspiratorially aren't more likely to assume everything happens for a reason, rejecting the likelihood of random chance, than people who don't hold conspiracy beliefs. "What we show is that the psychology of conspiracy theories is located in a rather high level of cognition, perhaps at the level of beliefs and ideology and not at the level of a deeper personality or perception mode," said study researcher Sebastian Dieguez, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland.

    A French court on Friday upheld a hospital's decision to keep a brain-damaged man alive in a case that has divided his family. The judges said Vincent Lambert's doctors were within their rights, based on their "professional and moral independence," to suspend an earlier court decision that would have seen them cut the intravenous food and water keeping the 38-year-old alive. The European Court of Human Rights had in June backed an earlier decision by a French court to allow Lambert to be taken off life support.

    Germany coach Joachim Loew saw his world champions humbled 1-0 by the Republic of Ireland in Euro 2016 qualifying Thursday but blasted the home side for scoring from their "100th long ball". Shane Long's 70th-minute strike gave Ireland a first ever competitive victory over the Germans that guaranteed at least a playoff spot, and offers them a serious chance of automatic qualification for the finals in France next summer. Germany's fate is in their own hands, with a home game against Georgia to come on Sunday and only one point required to reach the finals.
