  • Boris an outcast from Milat clan

    Boris Milat arranges the rifles on the dining room table - a good half-dozen spit-polished weapons - and prompts me to pick up one. Boris Milat hasn't gone by that name in more than a decade but he can't change his DNA. It is a combination of loyalty and fear that has kept Boris silent about Ivan's crimes for decades and turned him into a recluse after his brother's arrest.

  • China and the new arms race in the South China Sea

    The Philippines , Vietnam , Indonesia , Malaysia , Thailand and Taiwan are beefing up their military in the face of increasingly bold incursions in the region by China. China has over recent years declared increasing levels of sovereignty over the South China Sea, even parts of it that are far from the Chinese mainland. Largely as a result, other nations in the region have allocated more money for weapons and are expected to spend even more: IHS Janes sees virtually every nation in the region boosting expenditures-Indonesian procurement spending is expected to spike by 61 percent by 2021, for instance, and the Philippines is seen doubling spending in that time frame.

  • Reds' loss not O'Connor's fault

    James O'Connor won't bear the burden of blame on his own for Queensland's deflating 21-14 Super Rugby loss to the Sharks on Friday. While it was O'Connor's late howler that ultimately cost them, it was just one of a litany of errors on the night that held the Reds back from snatching a win that was well and truly there for the taking, according to coach Richard Graham. O'Connor looked ready for the ground to swallow him up after his miscued 69th-minute kick from behind his own tryline which should have relieved pressure on Queensland - but instead handed Sharks halfback Stefan Ungerer his second try on a silver platter.

  • US agents plotted to find bin Laden via meds: report

    The United States plotted to find Osama bin Laden by concealing tracking devices in medical supplies, possibly through Red Cross hospitals, a report said Thursday, citing documents leaked by former security contractor Edward Snowden. The Intercept news site quoted from a National Security Agency slide presentation dated June 2010 which discussed the possibility of going from "Pharma to Target" by penetrating "the non-electronic moat" that protected bin Laden from surveillance in his Pakistan hideout. Titled "Medical Pattern of Life: Targeting High Value Individual #1," the presentation cites CIA reports on the Al-Qaeda chief's poor health and invokes a scenario in which spy agencies target the "supply chain" of likely medicine and equipment destined for bin Laden.
