  • 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.

  • Fatal fire on Japan's airtight bullet train exposes lapses

    A fatal fire on Japan's bullet train, started by a man who self-immolated this week, has revealed blind spots in a system renowned for its speed, punctuality and safety record. On Tuesday, Haruo Hayashizaki, a 71-year-old retiree, poured a flammable liquid over himself and lit it while riding a bullet train heading to Osaka from Tokyo. Experts say it was a wake-up call to something more disastrous, potentially a terrorist attack, and it's time to step up risk management ahead of the G-7 summit in Japan next year and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

  • Malaysia's PM denies fraud, says ex-PM Mahathir foments crisis

    By Praveen Menon KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Friday denied taking money from state fund 1MDB or any other entity for personal gain, after a media report said investigators traced nearly $700 million to bank accounts that were allegedly in his name. The Wall Street Journal's report, if true, would be the first time the beleaguered prime minister has been directly linked to accusations of corruption surrounding the fund. Najib blamed former prime minister and Mahathir Mohamad, a past ally, of being behind the latest corruption allegations, which he described as a lie and said the allegations began when he refused to implement Mahathir's personal demands.
