China's Foreign Ministry on cyber security and NK nuke issue

Meanwhile, the Chinese government has also issued its response to Donilon's comments suggesting cyber security is a growing challenge to the Sino-US relationship.
Foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying says in opposition to turning cyberspace into a battlefield, China is calling for Internet rules and cooperation.

S. Korea urges DPRK not to void armistice agreement

Meanwhile, Hua Chunying also reaffirmed China's opposition to Pyongyang's nuclear tests, and committed to determining peaceful means for achieving the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The US government accuses the bank of supporting nuclear weapons proliferation.
The South Korean government has issued a formal response to North Korea's decision to scrap the 60-year old armistice, which brought an end to the fighting in the Korean War.
North Korea has declared the truce invalid as of this week.

60 killed by homemade alcohol in Libya

60 people have died after drinking homemade alcohol in Libya, most of them in the capital Tripoli.
Libya's Health Ministry says more than 700 people are suffering from alcohol poisoning.
Authorities say many of them are in intensive care.
The illegal concoction is known as Boukha, meaning water of life in the local dialect.
It is believed the home-made brew contained methanol, which can cause blindness, kidney failure, seizures and even death.
The consumption and sale of alcohol is banned in the North African country, even though it is available on the black market.

Syrian state media is refuting reports the Syrian army has declared a state of general mobilization.

Egypt has refused an urgent aid loan from the International Monetary Fund estimated at 750 million U.S dollars.
Egypt's Finance Minister says the loan being offered carries too much risk to the national economy.
The Egyptian government has been trying to secure a 4.8-billion dollar loan from the IMF.
Egypt's cash-strapped economy is expected to run a deficit of some 26 billion U.S. dollars through the current fiscal year.
Political unrest in the country over the past couple of years has taken a severe toll on the country's once-lucrative tourism sector.

Brazil announces tax breaks to spur communications growth

Brazil has announced 20-to-80 percent tax cuts for television, broadband and mobile Internet businesses as an incentive to expand the country's communication network.

The tax cuts are expected to bring in more than 9 billion U.S. dollars in new investment over the next few years.
