Syria accuses Israel of strike near Damascus airportSyria accused Israel of firing several missiles Thursday at a military position near Damascus airport, triggering a huge explosion and prompting a call from regime ally Russia for restraint. Israel has carried out multiple air strikes in Syria since the country’s civil war erupted in 2011, most of which it has said targeted arms convoys or warehouses of its Lebanese arch-foe Hezbollah, which is a key supporter of the Syrian regime.

Thai Red Bull heir threatened with arrest after latest no-show

Thai Red Bull heir threatened with arrest after latest no-showThai prosecutors vowed Thursday to seek the first arrest warrant for the heir to the Red Bull fortune after he dodged the latest summons to hear charges over a 2012 hit-and-run in his Ferrari that left a policeman dead. The threat comes after years of public anger over the lack of progress in a case that critics say highlights the impunity enjoyed by Thailand’s wealthy and well-connected. Worayuth Yoovidhya, whose nickname is “Boss”, was 27 when he allegedly smashed his Ferrari into a police officer in the early hours of the morning, dragging the body for several hundred metres before fleeing the scene of the crash.
