    By James Pomfret GUANGZHOU, China (Reuters) - An Australian man faced a possible death sentence on Thursday on charges of attempting to smuggle millions of dollars worth of drugs out of China. The trial follows Indonesia's high-profile executions last week of two convicted Australian drug smugglers, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, alongside six others from several countries, despite international criticism of its use of the death penalty. Chinese authorities arrested New Zealand-born Peter Gardner, 26, at the international airport in the southern city of Guangzhou last November, carrying bags of nearly 30 kg (66 lb) of methamphetamine, known as "ice". Customs officials put the market value of the drugs at several million dollars.

    By Manuel Mogato MANILA (Reuters) - China has warned Philippine air force and navy planes at least six times to leave areas around the disputed South China Sea, the Philippine military commander responsible for the region told a Senate hearing on Thursday. While Vice Admiral Alexander Lopez gave no timeframe, a senior Philippine air force official told Reuters the warnings had come in the past three months. China could be "testing the waters" to see if it can enforce an air exclusion zone above the Spratly archipelago of the South China Sea, said the air force official, who declined to be identified. Recent satellite images show China has made rapid progress in reclaiming land around seven reefs it occupies in the Spratlys, including building what appears to be an airstrip on one of the artificial islands.

  • Hesson says Southee-Boult duo set to … ANI - 1 hour 42 minutes ago

    Wellington, May 07 (ANI): New Zealand coach Mike Hesson believes that his heralded new-ball attack of Tim Southee and Trent Boult will successfully be able to dismantle the threat of England's embattled skipper Alastair Cook when the two sides face each other in the forthcoming two-match Test series. Earlier this week, England suffered a shock defeat against West Indies in the third and final Test in Barbados, as the tourists managed to secure only a 1-1 series draw. Cook was at the receiving end of criticism with former cricketer Geoffrey Boycott slamming the left-hander for being 'up his own arse' and 'living in cloud cuckoo' land about his leadership. While being aware of Cook's potential as an opener, Hesson said that new ball bowling was important for them as Boult and Southee start sets the tone for the Test match.
