The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been reportedly assassinated in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police said Kim Jong-nam collapsed suddenly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport – KLIA – he died en-route to hospital.
Police official Fadzil Ahmat said the cause of death was not yet known, and a post-mortem would be carried out on the body.
According to the official, Kim Jong-nam had been planning to travel to Macau on Monday when he fell ill at the airport’s low-cost terminal. “He felt dizzy, so he asked for help at the counter of KLIA.”

Former prime minister Tony Abbott has used a speech in London to call on European leaders to close their borders to asylum seekers or risk imperilling their nations.
Abbott used the occasion to promote the Coalition’s hardline asylum seeker policies as a solution to Europe’s migrant crisis, which has seen hundreds of thousands of people, mainly from the Middle East, cross into the continent.
The former PM urged regional leaders to act by “turning around boats and denying entry at the border for people with no right to come” :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia’s Government has announced it will legalise the growing of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
Health Minister Sussan Ley says the Government wants to give people suffering from debilitating illnesses access to all of the most effective medical treatments, including medical cannabis.
The minister said she had been moved by stories of people who get relief from the currently restricted drug, sometimes legally imported but not always. However, Ms Ley said the legalisation was only about medicinal cannabis, not recreational use.
“This is not a debate about legalisation of cannabis. This is not about illicit drugs. This is not a product you smoke. This has nothing to do with that,” Ms Ley said. “Most commonly the product is an oil or a tincture that you put on your skin.”
A progressive government in Victoria looks to have that state as the nation’s first onboard, the state Government plans to embark on a cannabis cultivation trial, based on the recommendations of a report by the Victorian Law Reform Commission :: Read the full article »»»»

The International Court of Justice – ICJ – has ruled Japan must immediately stop its whaling program in the Antarctic. The ICJ’s 16-judge panel ruled 12 votes to four in favour of Australia’s argument that Japan’s whaling program was not in fact designed and carried out for scientific purposes.
The court ruled that Japan must revoke current whaling permits and refrain from issuing any more. Japan has used the 1946 International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling, which permits killing for research, to justify killing whales in the Antarctic.
But the court’s judges agreed with Australia that the Japanese research – two peer-reviewed papers since 2005, based on results obtained from just nine killed whales – was not proportionate to the number of animals killed :: Read the full article »»»»

There is a slim chance that a woman is going to win Time Magazines Person of the Year 2013, not for a lack of potential candidates, Nobel Peace Prize and US Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, Aung San Suu Kyi exited decades of exile, fronting up for her people in a roughly emerging democracy. If your a little more right-wing with your politicians, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has to be a contender?
If giving is a noteworthy superpower, Melinda Gates, co-chair of the astounding Gates Foundation contributed mind boggling amounts of money to bettering the worlds living standards. Ms Gates and her foundation have made $US26 billion in grants over the past 13 years, not a shabby achievement.
At the less deserving end of contributors – entertainers – there’s Oprah and Beyonce. Oprah topped Forbes ‘Highest Earning Celebrity‘ list – and while many might think that alone is enough praise, she also touched the lives of the small folk, just ask a certain Swiss shop assistant. Beyonce on the other hand could use the prize after naming her child Blue Ivy.
