More attacks may have been planned in Thailand after police arrest a foreigner suspected to be linked to the August 17 Bangkok blast, according to The Nation. Pressure mounts on Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak as influential former leader Mahathir Mohamad throws his weight behind mass protests demanding the premier's ousting over a financial scandal, a report in The Straits Times says. In related news, protest organisers cry sabotage after claiming 13 people suffered from food poisoning after drinking fruit juice in packets which they claim had puncture marks on them, The Star reports. Cross-border tensions further abate over the weekend as North Korea accepts the South’s offer to hold bilateral Red Cross talks on September 7 to arrange the reunions of separated families, The Korea Herald notes. Countries across Asia are pouring resources into medical tourism, hoping to attract patients from overseas seeking advanced treatments and medical checks, The Yomiuri Shimbun writes.
