The disappearance of Flight MH370 is one of the most sophisticated, well-planned and well-orchestrated hostile takeovers of a plane since the 9/11 attacks in the United States 13 years ago, aviation and security experts said.
Last Sunday, Chinese Coast Guard ships drove away two civilian fishing boats contracted by the Philippine Navy to resupply the Philippine military outpost in Ayungin Shoal. This was the first time China stopped a routine supply mission in disputed areas in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), proving that China has now reached a higher, even more irresponsible, level of assertiveness in pressing its territorial claims.

In Fukuyama city, Hiroshima prefecture, stands the Holocaust Education Center, the only such facility in this region and a place where Japanese children can find out about Jewish teenage war diarist Anne Frank.
Singaporeans will likely huddle around their TV sets in June to watch World Cup soccer — but only if they pay, once again, a fee higher than anyone else on earth.
