North Korea’s recent deployment of four multiple rocket launchers on a border island is raising questions whether South Korea is sufficiently prepared to handle threats from these rockets and other artillery targeting Seoul and its surrounding areas, The Korea Herald reports. In his fifth year in office, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III performed below expectations, especially in areas of managing the economy, public finance, health and agriculture, according to a coalition of good governance advocates, the Philippine Daily Inquirer writes. A suicide bomber rammed a truck rigged with explosives into the blast walls around one of Mogadishu's most secure hotels, severely damaging the building and killing nine people including a Chinese diplomat, a report in China Daily states. The devastating drought currently affecting Thailand could drag on until the middle of next year due to what experts are calling the mother of all El Ninos, says The Nation. A light plane crashed into a residential area in the Tokyo suburb of Chofu on Sunday morning, leaving three people dead and five others injured, a report in The Yomiuri Shimbun states.
