Panelo: Robredo can’t ‘comprehend’ Duterte policy toward China

MANILA, Philippines - Malacanang scored Vice President Leni Robredo for failing to "comprehend the complexities of our current situation with China" and commenting that she had been disappointed by President Rodrigo Duterte's statement that China would agree to joint oil exploration if the Philippines set aside a 2016 international ruling that nullified Beijing's mythical nine-dash claim on virtually the entire South China Sea.   Salvador Panelo, presidential spokesperson, in a statement, said Robredo should have been "more circumspect" in discussing how the Duterte administration deals with China.   Robredo, said Panelo, should "rely more on her instinct as a lawye...

Photo of sick boy on floor roils British election campaign
LONDON - A photo of a sick boy sleeping on a hospital floor because no beds were available has become one of the defining images of Britain's bruising election campaign.     It forced Prime Minister Boris Johnson onto the defensive and ignited a fierce online debate over whether it was real or fake.   The boy, 4-year-old Jack Williment-Barr, had been admitted to Leeds General Infirmary last week with suspected pneumonia. He eventually was diagnosed with flu and tonsillitis and then discharged, but not before he was photographed lying on the floor cushioned by a coat with an oxygen mask nearby. A red coat served as a blanket.   The story was sp...Keep on reading: Photo of sick boy on floor roils British election campaign
