Australian police to renew bid to access Ukraine crash site

SYDNEY (Reuters) - A joint Australian-Dutch probe team will renew efforts on Monday to gain access to the crash site of a Malaysian airliner in eastern Ukraine, Australian Federal Police said, after fierce fighting kept them away the previous day. Evidence could be lost if fighting continued, said Deputy Commissioner of National Security Andrew Colvin, and the chances of finding the remains of all 298 dead grew slimmer as time passed. #facebook #Japan #Brazil #France #markets #Italy #Latin America #Entertainment #Mexico #australian #opinion

Sri Lankan asylum seekers in Australia limbo could sue government

SYDNEY (Reuters) - The fate of 157 Sri Lankan asylum seekers held at sea for almost a month before being brought to a detention centre in Australia was stuck in limbo on Monday, as lawyers for the detainees said they might sue the government for illegal imprisonment. The interception and detention of the Tamil asylum seekers, including 50 children, has highlighted Australia's controversial policy of turning back boats carrying potential refugees, which has drawn criticism from rights group and the United Nations. The government made the decision to bring the group to Australia on Sunday after lawyers began legal action in the High Court to stop them being sent to Sri Lanka, and disputing the government's stated right to assess asylum claims at sea #United States #China #Brazil #France #Australia #Russia #Government #markets #Latin America #opinion
