US carrier group patrols in disputed South China Sea region

China's Foreign Ministry on Wednesday warned Washington against challenging its sovereignty in the South China Sea. The US navy said the force, including Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, began routine operations in the South China Sea on Saturday. Friction between the United States and China over trade and territory under US President Donald Trump have increased concerns that the South China Sea could become a flashpoint. China wrapped up its own naval exercises in the South China Sea on Friday. China lays claim to almost all of the resource-rich South China Sea, through which about $5 trillion worth of trade passes each year.

New US travel ban to spare green card holders

A new version of a Trump administration travel ban will not stop green card residency holders or travelers already on planes from entering the United States, US Secretary for Homeland Security John Kelly said on Saturday. US President Donald Trump’s initial attempt to clamp down for security reasons on immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and on refugees snarled to a halt amid a judicial backlash and chaos at airports. “The president is contemplating releasing a tighter, more streamlined version of the first (order). The replacement order could be issued as early as Tuesday, the Journal reported, citing a US government official. The administration would seek to implement the new order a week to two weeks after it is signed, and covers citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, the Journal said.

'LOL' T-shirt designer hopes to cash in on North Korean assassination

The designer said "human rights abuses" by North Korea's leaders outweighed any arguments against making such T-shirts. Police believe a woman captured on video wearing a shirt with the letters "LOL" poisoned Kim Jong Nam, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, at Kuala Lumpur International Airport. A chief executive of online marketplace Redbubble, where several T-Shirts with the LOL (laugh out loud) label are being offered, did not immediately comment. Joel's LOL shirt was offered at about $35 on Saturday. The designer said sales were slow so far but that he saw the shirt appealing to feminists, internet "trolls" and anyone who opposed North Korea and other "fascist" regimes.

BNP to present guidelines on 'poll-time supporting government'

BNP Secretary General Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told a programme of the party in Bhola on Saturday that the BNP “wants the election, but it will have to be participated by all.”"A poll-time supporting government, which will be able to conduct the Election Commission properly, is needed for that. Declaring that the party will soon come up with the guideline for this government, he expected a positive response from the ruling party. In her proposal to form and strengthen the EC, BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia raised the demand for a 'poll-time supporting government'. Now the party is not using the term ‘caretaker’and demanding a 'supporting poll-time government' instead, insisting that a fair election is not possible when a partisan government is in power. Awami League Presidium Member Mohammed Nasim on Friday said it depends on Hasina who she will keep in the poll-time government.

Leicester gloom deepens as Ranieri's men suffer Cup shock

We played well in the first half, so-so at the beginning of the second until it went to 10 versus 11," the Italian told the BBC. "After then they played better than us, with more desire and heart and deserved to win. When a team from League One beats the champions we say, why and have to react as soon as possible. We are better than Millwall, but Millwall deserved to win." "When you play three matches in nine days, you need to give the opportunity," he said.

Lewandowski rescues lethargic Bayern with stoppage-time leveller

Hertha scored through Vedad Ibisevic with the Bosnian volleying in for his ninth goal and his first since November, with Bayern, who crushed Arsenal 5-1 in the Champions League in midweek, lacking any game plan despite controlling possession. But Lewandowski was in the right place at the right time to fire in from close range for his 16th league goal in the sixth minute of stoppage time after Arjen Robben had seen his shot blocked. Bayern, who have now won just one of their last three league games, moved up to 50 points with RB Leipzig, in second place on 42, travelling to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Sunday. Borussia Dortmund bounced back from their midweek Champions League loss at Benfica to ease past VfL Wolfsburg 3-0 and climb into third place on 37 points. Hoffenheim joined them on 37 points after their 2-0 victory over bottom side Darmstadt 98, courtesy of Andrej Kramaric's brace.

Bale back with a bang on return from injury

Bale collected a through ball from Isco and darted into the box, taking one touch before lashing it in off the far post for the perfect return after almost three months out with injury. Bale has won seven trophies since his world-record move to Real from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 but the title has so far evaded his grasp. "It felt really good to be back after working so hard to recover, especially to come back like this, helping the team with a goal," Bale told Real Madrid's official television channel. "It's been tough to watch from the sidelines but at least the team kept winning. He was so keen to return and feel like a player again after almost three months away from the pitch."
