Fears Of Fresh Protests As Hong Kong Vote Looms — Nine months after the "Umbrella Movement" swept Hong Kong, the city's politicians are going to vote on the electoral reform proposals which sparked the protests. Seventy lawmakers will decide whether to approve plans backed by China which will change the way Hong Kong's Chief Executive is elected.

Man Held Over Tiananmen Square Protest Selfies — A Chinese man has been detained after he took a series of highly controversial selfies in Beijing's Tiananmen Square. Du Yanlin, 52, posted several images of himself on Twitter on 4 June, the anniversary of the 1989 crackdown against pro-democracy activists in which hundreds died.

China Ferry Capsize 'Not Caused By Cyclone' — The official explanation for the cause of the boat disaster on China's Yangtze River has been called into question by a fisherman who says he witnessed the accident. Officials and the boat's captain have repeatedly said a cyclone was to blame for the capsizing and subsequent sinking of the Eastern Star on Monday night with 456 people on board.

Tragedy Strikes Popular Chinese Cruise Route — At the offices of the Xiehe Travel Corporation in Shanghai, distraught relatives of some of those on board the Eastern Star gather for any snippets of news. Shanghai is 600 miles downstream from the spot where the boat sank. It is where nearly 100 of the 458 on board were from.

Mass Graves Found At Malaysia Trafficking Camps — Malaysia's chief of police has revealed that his officers have discovered 139 graves in 28 human trafficking camps along Malaysia's northern border with Thailand.

Philippines Pledges To Help Stranded Migrants — The Philippines has indicated that it is willing to accept some of the 'boat people' stranded on boats in the Andaman Sea and Strait of Malacca. A spokesman for the Foreign Affairs Department in Manila was short on detail but expressed a commitment to help the migrants which goes further than other countries in the region.

Nepal's PM: Ban On RAF Chinooks Is Not Politics — Nepal's Prime Minister has added confusion to the debacle over permission for British Chinook helicopters to fly in Nepal. Speaking to Sky News, Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said he had refused access to the three Royal Air Force helicopters because of limited space at Kathmandu airport, and insisted the decision had nothing to do with politics.

Special Report: Survivors Cut Off By Nepal Quake — We are flying low over Nepal's mountainous countryside heading for towns at the centre of Nepal's earthquake where hundreds of people are stranded.
