South China Sea: Tribunal backs case against China brought by Philippines

South China Sea: Tribunal backs case against China brought by Philippines


    Prime Minister Modi calling a high level meeting to review the Kashmir situation, clashes in Kashmir continuing and the stranding of Indians in Juba due to fighting in the South Sudanese capital are some lead stories in papers today.
    "Kashmir clashes continue, toll hits 30" writes the Asian Age. The Hindu headlines "Centre rushes more troops to quell Kashmir unrest", while the Indian Express says "Fire fighting in Jammu and Kashmir, Rajnath reaches out to Sonia and Omar".
    In good news for the national capital, the Pioneer reports that the centre has sanctioned 658 crore rupees to put Delhi's decongestion plan in the fast lane.
    Under the headline "CRPF tribal battalion to take on Maoists", the Indian Express writes that the Ministry of Home Affairs has given the green signal for a tribal battalion drawn from Bastar in Chattisgarh to counter the Maoist threat in the region.
    The Times of India reports that Theresa May, a relative moderate who has served as Britain's Home Secretary for the last 6 years will take over tomorrow from Cameron and will be the 2nd woman to lead Britain, after Margret-Thatcher.
    And finally, in a heart warming story of trust and friendship, the Mail Today headlines: "Kashmir woman defies curfew for Hindu Friend", writing about how Zubeda Begum and her husband braved unrest and breached religious boundaries, as they walked for miles to bring food supplies to her Pandit friend across the Jehlum river in troubled Srinagar.
