Sevilla Go Second By Piling Misery On Malaga

Sevilla moved up to second in La Liga as second-half goals from Ever Banega and Luis Muriel ensured a routine 2-0 Andalusian derby victory over winless Malaga on Saturday. A sixth defeat in seven games pushes Malaga boss and legendary former Real Madrid player Michel ever closer to becoming already the fourth managerial change of the La Liga season. The hosts did, though, have to wait until 22 minutes from time to open the scoring from the penalty spot and with some fortune when Roberto Rosales was harshly adjudged to have brought down Joaquin Correa inside the box. Banega coolly dispatched the spot-kick and just two minutes later Muriel showed great pace to burst clear from the halfway line into the Malaga box before firing inside Roberto’s near post. Victory moves Sevilla to ...

Thailand Expects 250,000 To Attend Late King’s Cremation

A quarter of a million people are expected to descend on the Thai capital for an elaborate cremation ceremony planned for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej next month, a junta leader said Friday. The kingdom has been prepping for the event since Bhumibol died at the age of 88 in October, triggering an outpouring of grief in a nation where the charismatic leader commanded a cult-like following.

Rohingya: US Demands Prosecution Of Myanmar Officials

The United States says action must be taken against Myanmar’s military leaders whose operations have forced 500,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee into Bangladesh. Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, accused Myanmar’s authorities on Thursday of carrying out “a brutal, sustained campaign to cleanse the country of an ethnic minority”. “The time for well-meaning, diplomatic words in this council has passed,” she told the UN Security Council, which held its first public meeting on Myanmar since 2009, though it failed to arrive at a resolution. Haley’s comments came as more than 50 Rohingya refugees were missing on Friday after their boat capsized in driving wind, rain, and high seas. The UN’s International Organisation for Migration said about 130 people were believed t...
