  • 'Crazy' Chinese spending spree just the start - Cahill

    The spending splurge by Chinese clubs to secure top Europe-based talents is "crazy" and will do little to benefit the players or the game in China, according to Australia's Shanghai-based striker Tim Cahill. Since Cahill re-signed for Shenhua last October, CSL clubs have spent over 130 million euros ($145 million) in transfer fees on just four players, with Jiangsu Suning shelling a Chinese record 50 million euros to secure Brazilian midfielder Alex Teixeira in a move completed last week. Cahill said it was only a matter of time before a Chinese club spent $100 million to secure a player.

  • To protect Chinese investment, Pakistan military leaves little to chance

    By Syed Raza Hassan GWADAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - A heavy police presence, guarded convoys, new checkpoints and troop reinforcements have turned parts of the southern port city of Gwadar into a fortress, as Pakistan's powerful military seeks to protect billions of dollars of Chinese investment. Securing the planned $46 billion economic corridor of roads, railways and pipelines from northwest China to Pakistan's Arabian Sea coast is a huge challenge in a country where Islamist militants and separatist gunmen are a constant menace. The armed forces and interior ministry have sent hundreds of extra soldiers and police to Gwadar, the southern hub of the so-called China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), and more are on their way.

  • Insight: Doctors puzzle over severity of defects in some Brazilian babies

    By Bill Berkrot and Anthony Boadle NEW YORK/BRASILIA, (Reuters) - Experts on microcephaly, the birth defect that has sparked alarm in the current Zika virus outbreak, say they are struck by the severity of a small number of cases they have reviewed from Brazil. Consultations among doctors in Brazil and the United States have increased in the last two weeks, and some of the leading authorities on the condition are finding patterns of unusual devastation in scans of the newborns' malformed brains. While it's not known how representative the scans are, the early observations of these doctors point to a tough road ahead for the babies, their families and their communities and heighten the concern surrounding Zika, which is suspected of causing microcephaly.
