The South China Sea fell off Trump’s radar, but he may have to pay attention in 2018


China claims nearly all of the South China Sea. In 2016, an international tribunal ruled against those claims, but the finding has largely been ignored

Focused on North Korea and evidently enamoured of President Xi Jinping, the voluble U.S. president said relatively little as China continued to build on disputed islands, rocks and reefs.

A recent Chinese report hailed progress in the South China Sea last year, noting construction totalling 290,000 square metres, or 72 acres. That included work on hangars, missile shelters and large radar and and sensor arrays, according to satellite images reviewed by the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, a U.S. think tank.

Những điều tôi làm hàng ngày để góp phần cho trái đất xanh hơn

Tác giả Ly Nguyễn

#1: Tiết kiệm nước bằng cách ngắt vòi nước trong khi đánh răng, rửa mặt, rửa bát.

#2: Tiết kiệm điện bằng cách chỉ bật điện khi nào thấy thiếu ánh sáng cho nhu cầu sử dụng của mình. Có bật thì cũng chỉ bật đủ cho nhu cầu của mình lúc đó. Tiết kiệm điện bằng cách nữa là tắt đi khi không dùng đến, chẳng hạn như tắt đèn hành lang hay cầu thang khi không dùng đến.

The incident happened at a scrap facility in a residential area where many warheads have been found.

An explosion took place early Wednesday in Bac Ninh Province, killing two children, aged one and five, and leaving six others injured, said local officials.

The incident, which destroyed seven houses and unroofed another 10, took place at a scrap facility in a residential area in Yen Phong District, some 40 kilometers (24 miles) northeast of Hanoi.

All what’s left of the facility is now a three-meter deep pit.

The explosion was caused by explosives of unknown origin stored at the facility, said the provincial chair Nguyen Tu Quynh based on preliminary investigation.

Police and soldiers are at the scene rescuing people still stuck under the rubble as well as clearing the site.

Nguyen Van Tuan and his family, who live 30 meters from the scrap facility, were woken up at around 4:30 a.m. to deafening sounds of the explosion as the ground shook, houses collapsed and warheads rained down.

“I run away with my wife and children, stepping over warheads. Only around 1 kilometer away from the scene, there were no more warheads, Tuan said.”

Authorities estimate that the explosion could be felt as far as 5 kilometers from the scene.

Sipping a cup of coffee in his office overlooking the Saigon River, Lien Khui Thin, 62, questioned Vietnam’s rationale for executing people like him.

In 1999, Thin and two other men, including a prominent banker, were sentenced to death for embezzling VND3 trillion (now US$141 million) by falsifying government loan documents. Tiếp tục đọc “Jury out as Vietnam holds fast to white-collar noose”
