As Malaysia unites in grief today, a solemn and dignified reception awaits the remains of 20 Malaysians a month after the tragic incident that killed all 298 passengers on board Flight MH17, writes The Star. A commercial surrogacy ring has "exported" more than 100 babies and earned more than 50 million baht (US$1.56 million) each year, The Nation says quoting a young woman who claims to have sold her eggs to the ring. Losing Indonesian presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto and running mate Hatta Rajasa have accepted the Constitutional Court's verdict rejecting their lawsuit on alleged electoral fraud but insisted the ruling did not reflect substantive justice, The Jakarta Post reports. The Beijing police reportedly obtained a list containing 120 celebrities suspected of drug abuse, including the son of action star Jackie Chan who was recently detained for possession of marijuana, writes China Daily. North Korea is expected to complete the expansion of a long-range rocket launch site on the country's west coast by this fall, in a move that will allow the regime to fire bigger rockets with heavier payloads, according to The Korea Herald.
