Vietnam asks China to withdraw missiles from South China Sea
Vietnam has requested China to withdraw its military equipment from South China Sea outposts, saying their deployment seriously violates Hanoi's sovereignty, increases tension and destabilizes the regional situation. The comments came after CNBC reported last week that China had installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three outposts in the contested Spratly Islands, which are also claimed by Vietnam among others. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang says in a statement Vietnam has sufficient legal basis and historical evidence to affirm its sovereignty over the Spratlys and the Paracels in the South China Sea.

Attacks in Syrian capital kill 4, wound 24
A bomb blast and shells fired by insurgents on the center of Damascus yesterday killed four people and wounded 24, Syria's state media said. State media initially said three shells hit the city center, and only reported the separate explosion later in the day. State news agency SANA said three shells struck a tall building known as the Damascus Tower and a nearby area, and that there was an explosion in Maysat Square. State TV showed a charred minibus as well as damaged cars in the area where the bombing occurred. It was not immediately clear what kind of bomb was used. The shells were apparently fired by Islamic State group fighters in the southern part of the city.
