    1. FIFA suspends and fines Suarez

    Uruguay striker Luis Suarez will miss the rest of the World Cup after he was banned on June 26 for nine international matches and four months for biting an Italian defender during a game, FIFA said.

    Suarez, 27, who also plays for Liverpool in England, will miss the start of the upcoming Premier League season and the club’s Champions League games this fall. Furthermore, the ban also covers Uruguay’s next nine international matches, which will stretch beyond the next four months, and will almost certainly rule him out of the start of next year’s Copa America, South America’s continental championship.

    2. Ex-editor convicted of phone hacking

    Two powerful British political insiders met different fates on June 24 as former News of the World editor Andy Coulson was convicted of phone hacking, but fellow editor Rebekah Brooks was acquitted*, after a months-long trial centering on illegal activity at the heart of Rupert Murdoch’s newspaper empire.

    A jury at London’s Old Bailey unanimously found Coulson, the former spin doctor* for British Prime Minister David Cameron, guilty of conspiring* to intercept* communications by eavesdropping on mobile phone voicemails. Brooks was acquitted of that charge and of counts of conspiring to bribe officials and obstruct police.

    3. Vietnam pays $7m in compensation

    Vietnam has made an initial payment of more than US$7 million in compensation to nearly 140 businesses, including Chinese companies, that came under attack during anti-China riots* last month.

    Hanoi has promised to help affected companies recover from the worst unrest in years by offering initiatives such as tax deferments*.

    4. Russia will not use force in Ukraine

    On Russian President Vladimir Putin’s demand, the upper house of the Russian parliament on June 23 canceled a resolution allowing the use of military in Ukraine.

    The quick vote came a day after Putin asked lawmakers to rescind* his earlier request for permission to use troops in Ukraine. He said that his move is intended to help support the peace process in Ukraine.

    5. Park disapproves PM’s resignation

    South Korean President Park Geun-hye rejected the resignation* of her prime minister on June 26 and asked him to stay on after her second nominee for the job stood aside over controversial comments he had made about Korea’s troubled past with Japan.

    The decision to keep incumbent* Prime Minister Chung Hong-won, who tendered his resignation two months ago over the government’s flawed response to a ferry disaster, heightened concerns about her ability to rule and push through reforms.

    6. MH370 ‘flew on autopilot then ran out of fuel’

    Australian officials believe that missing Flight MH370 flew on autopilot* until it ran out of fuel as Australia announced that an underwater search must go further south to find the Malaysia Airlines jet’s most likely resting place.

    After analyzing data between the plane and a satellite, officials believe flight 370 was on autopilot the entire time it was flying across a vast expanse of the southern Indian Ocean, South China Morning Post said on June 25.

    7. Tycoon offers free feast

    A Chinese tycoon served up a fancy lunch on June 25 to homeless New Yorkers at a Central Park restaurant, but caught grief from attendees expecting cash.

    Recycling magnate* Chen Guangbiao selected a menu of sesame-seed-encrusted tuna, beef filet and berries with creme fraiche at The Loeb Boathouse restaurant for more than 200 residents of the New York City Rescue Mission, the nation’s oldest shelter.

    Wads of* cash filled wire baskets at the restaurant, with Chen waving some of the money in front of the guests, but when the guests discovered that they in fact would not be given any money, an uproar ensued, with some yelling, “We want it now!”(SD-Agencies)
