World - Taiwan to spend $2.5 billion on anti-missile systems


Taiwan plans to spend Tw$74.8 billion ($2.5 billion) in the next nine years to acquire anti-missile systems to boost its aerial defences against China, a lawmaker and media said Saturday. The defence ministry aims to purchase the locally-made Tien Kung 3 (Sky Bow 3) surface-to-air missile system between 2015 and 2024 to replace the ageing Hawk missile systems, said lawmaker Lin Yu-fang of the parliament`s defence committee. The Tien Kung 3 surface-to-air missile system, developed by Taiwan`s Chungshan Institute of Science and Technology, is designed to counter tactical ballistic missiles for air defence missions and missile interception, according to Lin. Taiwan unveiled the Tien Kung 3 missile to the public at a national day parade in 2007 and tested it at a major missile drill in 2011.

Sports - Bradley gets closer to Cup dream with an opening 65


Ryder Cup selection is a top priority for Keegan Bradley and he gave his prospects of a late call-up a timely boost by charging into contention for the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday. Bradley, who has made no secret of his desire to be one of three wildcard picks by United States captain Tom Watson next week, fired a flawless six-under-par 65 at the TPC Boston to end the opening round two shots off the pace. A three-time winner on the PGA Tour who clinched his first major title at the 2011 PGA Championship, the 28-year-old has set his sights on making the Ryder Cup team for a second time.

World - Germany steps up fight against far right after neo-Nazi murders


Germany has drafted legislation to help prevent a repeat of a racist murder spree by a neo-Nazi cell in 2011, giving a bigger role to federal prosecutors and allowing courts to focus more on xenophobic motives. The killings shocked Germany after going undetected for more than a decade and coming to light only by chance in late 2011. The draft law, approved by Chancellor Angela Merkel`s cabinet on Wednesday, will implement recommendations made by a parliamentary panel after the murders of eight Turks, a Greek and a policewoman in Germany between 2000 and 2007. `Overall it will become easier to justify the responsibility of the federal prosecutor,` the government said in a statement.

World - Japanese court rules against nuclear operator in suicide suit


By Lisa Twaronite FUKUSHIMA Japan (Reuters) - The operator of Japanese nuclear reactors that melted down in 2011 is responsible for the suicide of a woman who became depressed after the accident and it must pay $472,000 in compensation, a court ruled on Tuesday. The surprise ruling could set a precedent for more claims for compensation in connection with the triple nuclear meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant north of Tokyo, which forced more than 150,000 people from their homes. The lawsuit by Mikio Watanabe blamed Tokyo Electric Power Co Inc (Tepco) for the July 2011 death of his wife, Hamako, 58, who doused herself in kerosene and set herself on fire after falling into depression. The ruling is the latest blow for Tepco, which was bailed out with taxpayer funds in 2012 and had already expected to spend more than $48 billion in compensation for the disaster at its plant, on top of tens of billions or more in cleanup and decommissioning costs.

World - Libya Islamists say they shot down jet of rival forces


Libyan jihadists said Friday they downed a plane belonging to forces of a rogue general, but a source close to the officer said it crashed because of a technical fault. The military aircraft came down in Al-Baida in eastern Libya after carrying out air strikes targeting Islamists in Derna farther east, a spokesman for general Khalifa Haftar said. Haftar in May launched an offensive dubbed `Operation Dignity` against radical Islamists in Benghazi, Libya`s second city and birthplace of the 2011 uprising that toppled dictator Moamer Kadhafi. Ansar al-Sharia is based in Benghazi and is said to control 80 percent of the city.

World - Britain raises its terrorism threat level over Syria, Iraq


By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - Britain raised its international terrorism threat level to the second highest level of `severe` on Friday in response to possible attacks being planned in Syria and Iraq, Home Secretary (interior minister) Theresa May said. `That means that a terrorist attack is highly likely, but there is no intelligence to suggest that an attack is imminent,` May said in a statement. `The increase in the threat level is related to developments in Syria and Iraq where terrorist groups are planning attacks against the West. Some of those plots are likely to involve foreign fighters who have traveled there from the UK and Europe to take part in those conflicts.` It is the first time since mid-2011 that Britain has been placed on this grade of alert following an assessment carried out by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Center, the body responsible for setting the national threat level.
