UNHCR: Release Roghingya refugees from detention

    The Rohingya refugees who arrived in Malaysia after being stranded in the Bay of Bengal a year ago must be released from detention, says United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). UNHCR Malaysia representative Richard Towle said the refugees needed to be looked after properly and this could not be done effectively or fairly in the immigration detention system. “That’s why after the Bay of Bengal crisis we have been saying give us access, let them out of detention and we will look after them,” Towle told reporters after the launch of Odysseys: A Photographic Exhibition of the Asia and Europe refugee crises by Agence France-Presse (AFP) here on Wednesday.

U.S. Accuses China of Dangerous, High-Speed Intercept of Spy Plane in South China Sea

    A Chinese fighter jet carried out an "unsafe" intercept of a U.S. spy plane in international airspace over the East China Sea, two U.S. defense officials said on Tuesday. The intercept involved a Chinese J-10 fighter plane and a U.S. Air Force RC-135 reconnaissance plane, the officials said. The officials, who requested anonymity, said the air crew deemed the encounter to be "unsafe" because of the "high rate of speed" at which the Chinese jet was traveling. In May, the Pentagon said that two Chinese fighter jets flew within 50 feet (15 meters) of a U.S. EP-3 aircraft over the South China Sea. The Pentagon determined that the May incident violated an agreement the two governments signed last year. Earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States woul...
