City streets destroyed in Taiwan blasts (with photos)

ASSOCIATED PRESS
Taiwan, Aug 1:City streets destroyed, transformed into trenches strewn with dirt, ripped pieces of pipe and jagged blocks of concrete. Broken fire trucks turned upside down, twisted soot-covered cars and motorcycles, ripped advertising signs.

The site of underground gas explosions in Taiwan´s second-largest city is a scene of destruction. The blasts hit a densely populated district where petrochemical companies operate pipelines in the city of Kaohsiung. Firefighters who went to investigate the early reports of a gas leak were among the dead and injured. [More]

  • NOC dispute takes new turn following SC ruling
    REPUBLICA
    KATHMANDU, July 31: While the dispute between National Sports Council (NSC) member secretary Yubraj Lama and Minister of Youths and Sports (MoYS) Purushottam Paudel eventually appear to have been resolved, a fresh dispute has emerged regarding the legitimacy of two separate Nepal Olympic Committees (NOCs).

    Sending its second letter to NSC, the verdict enforcement directorate of the Supreme Court (SC) has ordered the sports governing body to implement its decision. SC on July 2010 had given recognition to Rukma Sumsher Rana-led NOC. The other NOC was led by Dhruba Bahadur Pradhan and is recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA). NOC-led by Pradhan has officially been entrusted with making preparations for participation in the Asian Games as well.   [More]
