Two people had been confirmed killed and another 54 injured as of 6:30am Sunday after a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Kangding County in southwest China's Sichuan, according to a report in China Daily. Abenomics, the economic strategy of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, is expected to be the main issue in a fierce campaign battle that starts next month, The Yomiuri Shimbun notes. New Asian wealth seeks strategic philanthropy, The Straits Times quotes a report as saying. Another dead pink dolphin was found washed up on a beach in Nakhon Si Thammarat, south of Bangkok, The Nation reports. Chinese veteran actor Chen Jianbin became the biggest winner at The 51st Golden Horse Awards, winning in three of the four categories where he was nominated, including best lead actor and best supporting actor, The China Post writes.
