She received more than double the votes of John Tsang , her main rival. Tsang, Leungs former Financial Secretary until last December, received 365 votes from the election committee. His support largely came from electors belonging to the pro-democracy camp, many of whom described him as the lesser evil among the slate of candidates. While Tsang was far more popular with the people in Hong Kong during the campaign, the result comes with little surprise, in part because Lam was seen as the candidate blessed by Beijing. Public polling conducted throughout the two-month period of the election consistently found that, although the people of Hong Kong preferred Tsang, they thought Lam would be the likely victor. (A third candidate, former justice Woo Kwok-hing, got 21 votes, far fewer than either Lam or Tsang.) Outside the waterfront-facing Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, where members of the election committee had cast their ballots for two hours earlier that morning, protestors rallied against the decision and the fact that they did not have any votes in this election.

As part of the redevelopment, the Miniestadi, where Barcelona B currently play just metres away from the Camp Nou, will make way to a new arena for the Barca basketball team and increased commercial space. Barca B's new home stadium will be at the club's training ground on the western outskirts of the city. Jordi Cruyff also announced the family will donate a Barcelona shirt worn by his father and his Ballon d'Or trophy from the 1973/1974 season to a new Cruyff exhibition at the Barcelona museum. "It is an agreement by which my father will always be present at the club that he loved," said Jordi Cruyff. Johan Cruyff was one of Barcelona's greatest ever players and coaches, winning 13 trophies in all including the club's first ever European Cup as coach in 1992. — AFP

LANGKAWI: The ownership of military assets must be balanced with other things deemed important for the country's development, says Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein. At the moment, he said, there were questions over a plan by the ministry to purchase a new fighter jet under its multi-role combat aircraft (MRCA) replacement programme, to replace the Russian-made MiG-29 aircraft currently used by the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF). "Indeed, there is a need for us (to purchase) but we have to prioritise and balance up our affordability with other necessities that might be more urgent," he said at the 2050 National Transformation (TN50) Dialogue here today. Also present was Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin. The dialogue, themed 'The Future of Malaysia's Defence' was held in conjunction with the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2017 (Liam'17).

the only one that still works. But one clock won't make an exhibition, so the public appeal was made for the donation of clocks. It has been quite a painstaking process to categorise them, to clean them, to make.

A new London exhibition is displaying portraits of Yezidi women who survived violence when living under ISIS . The #IamYezidi exhibit at the Lacey Contemporary Gallery in the British capital features portraits of women who were kept captive by the terrorist organization and who sat for the photographer Benjamin Eagle. We want to tell these women's stories, to make sure that they're not faceless, said Ravinder Singh, the founder of Khalsa Aid, an NGO which helped organize the exhibition. The Yezidis are an ancient religious minority from northern Iraq, who have been the targets of ISIS genocide, according to the UN . The faith draws on multiple religions, including Christianity and Islam. ISIS militants have separated men and boys from their families and kill those who refuse to convert in an attempt to exterminate the Yazidi identity.
