Environment ministers from five Asean nations agree to share information on a government-to-government basis that would help identify plantation companies on whose land fires start and cause haze, says The Straits Times. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak says he could accept differences of opinion and criticism but ministers should not air them openly because it could jeopardise public perception towards the government and country, according to The Star. The China Securities Regulatory Commission says it is probing "a massive sell-off" after Monday's sharp dive in the market, China Daily writes. A senior Japanese sports ministry official in charge of a project to build a new National Stadium in Tokyo will step down, a report in The Yomiuri Shimbun says. Lotte Group founder and general chairman Shin Kyuk-ho is sacked from the post of CEO of Lotte Holdings in Japan by his heir and second son Shin Dong-bin, The Korea Herald reports.
