Borneo Man To Hang For British Students' Murder — A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to death for the killing of two British medical students on the island of Borneo last August. Fishmonger Zulkipli Abdullah faces death by hanging once his appeals have been exhausted. Newcastle University students Neil Dalton and Aidan Brunger, both 22, were found lying in a road in Kuching, the capital of Malaysia's Sarawak state, on 6 August.

Singapore Teen Held For Likening Ex-PM To Hitler — A 17-year-old student has been arrested in Singapore after posting a highly critical video of the city-state's founding Prime Minister, who died last week. In the eight-minute YouTube clip, Amos Lee, a former child actor, sought to present an alternative account of Lee Kuan Yew's legacy. "Why hasn't anyone said 'F*** yeah!

Outrage At China Treatment Of Activists — The lawyer for one of five women held in China after campaigning for women's rights has told Sky News their treatment is beyond anything he could ever have imagined. Wang Qiushi represents Wei Tingting, who was detained by Chinese authorities on 6 March with four other young women.

MH370 Search Boss 'Expecting' To Find Plane — The man in charge of the search for missing flight MH370 has told Sky News that he is "expecting but not guaranteeing" that the aircraft will be found. Martin Dolan, chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Board (ATSB), the organisation coordinating the search in the Southern Ocean, told Sky News that while he was once "cautiously optimistic" he is now "less cautious and more optimistic".

MH370 Search Could 'Go Back To Drawing Board' — A year since MH370 disappeared, the Malaysian transport minister has said his country remains committed to finding the plane but refused to pledge that the search would continue beyond May. In an interview with Sky News, Liow Tiong Lai said that when the current search of the southern Indian Ocean is completed, "we will have to go back to the drawing board".

MH370 Missing Remembered A Year After Disaster — Exactly a year ago, Wang Le was preparing for his mother's return from a holiday in Malaysia. Zhang Chi had been to Kuala Lumpur with a friend. She sent her son a text message just before leaving. "At Kuala Lumpur airport" it read. She then boarded her plane for Beijing: Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Pangolin: Battle To Save Most Hunted Animal — The elephant, the tiger and the rhino are the undisputed "celebrities" of the world's endangered species, but they are by no means the animals most at risk of extinction. The most hunted animal in the world is a creature so sought after by Chinese and Vietnamese consumers that, as Prince William recently remarked, it could be extinct before most people have ever heard of it.

Battle To Save World's Most Hunted Animal — The Duke of Cambridge is to use his state visit to China to press for an end to the country's massive illegal trade in wildlife. While the elephant, the tiger and the rhino are the undisputed "celebrities" of the world's endangered species, they are by no means the animals most at risk of extinction.

Prince William Sells 'Brand Britain' To China — Prince William is in Shanghai on the first day of his visit to China. He arrived in the country's largest city after a morning of diplomatic duties in the capital Beijing. The trip is the first visit to China by a senior British royal for three decades and represents a significant test of the prince's diplomatic dexterity.
