Threatens Taiwan

Makes Statement

After the island elects pro-independence leader Tsai, China warns¬†that Taiwan should “abandon its hallucinations about pushing for independence”.

If there is no peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait, Taiwan’s new authority will find the sufferings of the people it wishes to resolve on the economy, livelihood and its youth will be as useless as looking for fish in a tree.

Taiwan Plane Crash


A TransAsia Airways turboprop plane crashes on its second attempt at landing during a thunderstorm on an island off Taiwan, killing 47 people and setting buildings on fire.

The aircraft takes off from Taiwan’s southern city of Kaohsiung, heads for the island of Makong, but crash-lands in Huxi township of Penghu County, the main island of the chain also known as the Pescadores. Inclement weather at the time of the crash did not exceed international regulations for landing.
