    Massive explosion in Lebanon

    Hopefully not an act of terrorism. Lebanese capital rocked by huge explosion https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/middleeast/live-news/lebanon-beirut-explosion-live-updates-dle-intl/index.html At least 78 people were killed in a massive explosion that shook the Lebanese capital, Beirut, on Tuesday evening, Lebanon's health minister told Reuters. The blast appears to have been centered on the city's port area. A CNN producer witnessed "chaotic scene" in Beirut emergency room following the explosion. Lebanon state-run NNA news reported that a major fire broke out near Beirut port and firefighting teams rushed to the scene and worked to put out the fire. Story developing.

It has been disturbing me all weekend, what do you think is the root cause Is it a road design issue in general, or are drivers here in Singapore become more callous and careless? Or is everyone so tired, stressed/over worked that rushing around with no concentration while driving?
  3. CB motorcyclist... The Cambodian authorities are seeking the owner of a Singapore-registered motorcycle allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident that killed an elderly man. The incident happened on Feb 7 in Cambodia's capital city of Phnom Penh, in the Khan Por Senchey area along the National Highway 4. According to local media reports, the victim was an 81-year-old man from the Por Senchey district who was crossing the road on his bicycle at about 12.50pm Cambodian time (1.50pm Singapore time). Cambodian news site Cambodia News English (CNE) reported on Feb 7 that the victim had his hands up in the air while crossing, signalling for traffic to slow down. A "high-powered motorcycle" then slammed into him at high speed, killing him instantly. There have been conflicting reports about whether the motorcycle, which was later identified as a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure, had toppled or slowed down after the crash. SINGAPORE Biker linked to hit-and-run was in Cambodia for charity Feb 21, 2019 Related Stories Overall crime rate up in Singapore Carousell launching new review system and tech to tackle fraudsters Two arrested for trying to enter Singapore illegally on sampan But it was consistently reported that it had sped away and that the rider, who eyewitnesses said was dressed in yellow, did not stop to render assistance. However, a piece of debris from the motorcycle with the BMW logo was found at the scene. Photos of the aftermath showed the piece of debris next to the body of the victim covered by a cloth on the ground and distraught family members crying. The bicycle he was on also lay twisted on the ground with its front wheel missing. FOUNDIn an update yesterday, CNE reported that the motorcycle was found parked outside a boutique hotel near the Phnom Penh Central Market area. The motorbike was also missing a piece from its front, and it is believed that the piece of debris found at the scene was from the same motorbike. Pictures of the motorbike showed that it bore stickers with the flags of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Laos. The BMW motorcycle model has a capacity of 1,170cc, with a maximum speed of over 200kmh. It has a weight of about 260kg and a 30-litre aluminium fuel tank and is described on the BMW website as a motorbike able to "overcome every type of terrain". It costs more than $50,000 here inclusive of the certificate of entitlement. CNE told The New Paper yesterday that it received a tip-off from an anonymous source on Facebook that the owner of the motorcycle had allegedly returned to Singapore to seek treatment for an injured wrist, leaving the motorbike behind. The news has riled both Singaporean and Cambodian netizens, many of whom have demanded she return to Cambodia to assist in investigations. Netizens have also identified a woman who lives in Singapore as the alleged owner. Checks by TNP on her Facebook page showed the mother of two in several photos with the same motorbike found outside the hotel in Phnom Penh. She was also affiliated with local rider groups and appeared to frequently travel by motorbike to Malaysia and Thailand. Attempts by TNP to contact her have been unsuccessful, and her Facebook page was deactivated yesterday evening. A close friend of the woman who did not want to be identified told TNP he was surprised to hear of the allegations. "This is news to me... she is a close friend," he said. "I've never known her to run away from responsibilities." The man added that she has also not responded to any of his messages since. Another acquaintance of the woman told TNP he was unsure if she was Singaporean but confirmed that she lives in Singapore. Singapore does not currently have an extradition treaty with Cambodia. TNP understands that while the Cambodian authorities are still looking for the woman, they have yet to contact their counterparts in Singapore.
  4. A Singaporean man has been charged with dangerous driving over a four-car accident in New Zealand that killed a motorcyclist. Lew Wei Kiong, 29, had been due in the Dunedin District Court on Tuesday (Dec 8) to face a count of dangerous driving causing death. Three new charges of dangerous driving causing injury were also due to be brought against him, reported the Otago Daily Times, but the case has been adjourned to Dec 22. Lew, who works at the Energy Market Authority (EMA), was involved in the accident along the state highway in North Otago, about 20km south of Oamaru, on Nov 29. EMA confirmed to Shin Min Daily News that Lew was an employee and that it was extending aid to two employees in New Zealand. According to stuff.co.nz, Lew was driving a rented Toyota and had allegedly crossed the double yellow lines on the highway to overtake a group of cars. He crashed into two cars and a motorcycle travelling in the opposite direction. The passenger in the Toyota, who is also believed to be Singaporean, had to be cut from the car and was flown to Dunedin Public Hospital with serious injuries. Five others suffered injuries, while the motorcyclist, 39-year-old Craig Alan Chambers, died at the scene. New Zealand police had blamed the car crash on driver "inattention". The accident also reportedly reignited a debate over tourist drivers and the condition of roads in New Zealand, with Labour Party MP Damien O'Connor suggesting that poor road design could have led to the crash. He said that certain roads on the country's south island could be confusing for foreign drivers and clearer signage was needed. http://www.straitstimes.com/asia/australianz/singapore-tourist-charged-with-dangerous-driving-after-fatal-crash-in-new-zealand?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook#xtor=CS1-10

The body of Lee Jun Jie, 23, an undergraduate from the National University of Singapore (NUS), was found by a search and rescue team at 9.50am, about 100 metres from the camp.

A NUS spokesperson said that while not all 23 participants are from NUS, arrangements are being made for the group to return to Singapore as soon as possible. In the statement released to the media on Sunday, NUS said that it is deeply saddened by the student's death, and added that Mr Lee's family was informed about the accident immediately. Two university staff are accompanying the family to the camp site and will be on hand to provide assistance and support, and the university is in touch with the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Malaysian authorities. According to Malay-language daily Utusan Malaysia, the slippery path caused Mr Lee to lose his balance while he was admiring the scenery at around 7pm yesterday evening.
