New Japan minister hit by S&M bar scandal TOKYO: Japan was stung Thursday by its third political scandal in a week after the country's new industry minister -- whose predecessor resigned in disgrace over misspending -- admitted that his underlings had spent office cash at a sex bar.The new revelations could deal another serious blow to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose administration is already facing a public backlash over its bid to turn Japan's shuttered nuclear reactors back on while his plan to ...
Hong Kong climbers hang protest banner off landmark cliff HONG KONG: A group of climbers unfurled a giant protest banner from a famous Hong Kong cliff Thursday after the city's leader said that full democracy demanded by mass rallies would give the poor too much power.
