North Korea bolsters cyberwarfare capabilities, according to a special report by The Korea Herald. Malaysia secures an agreement with Ukrainian rebels to allow an international police team to protect aircraft crash investigators at the MH17 site, The Star reports. A coalition of nongovernment organisations gives the Aquino administration a grade of 6.11 in his fourth year in office, a rating that suggests “something has been accomplished but is lower than expected”, the Philippine Daily Inquirer writes. The huge car bomb in Betong, South Thailand, that killed two and wounded 42 others is expected to put a 100 million baht-plus dent in the town's economy, The Nation notes. Legal experts and industry insiders call for more stringent legislation on food safety in China after a scandal involving the Shanghai Husi Food Co, China Daily says.
