That were seen on a video clip, has been posted on the internet. According to Sai Gon Giai Phong reporters, the case took place at a daycare in Binh Thuan 1 Hamlet, Thuan Giao Commune, Thuan An District, the northern province of Binh Duong on the afternoon of November 19 or 20.

Yesterday morning, the commune authorities and officials from the province Department of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs investigated the daycare, which is also the woman’s house.

The baby sister, identified as Tran Thi Phung, admitted that she had bathed the baby in the clip. Meanwhile, the little girl named Ho Thi Thuy Ngan, baby of a worker’s family, living near the daycare.

Ngan usually refused to have a bath, so Phung stepped on her body to prevent her from running around, Phung explained.

There was a swollen scar on Ngan’s head while the remaining five children’s bodies were black and blue and with scratches. Ms.Phung said the injuries had been caused as the babies fell down at their homes.

Having been not licensed, Phung has worked as a child minder for workers’ families for ten years old. At present, Phung takes care of six babies, aged from 1-3, with the prices of VND300-350,000 a month, including food expenses.

Local officials said that Thuan Giao Commune now has about 20 unlicensed daycares. In the beginning of each school year, investigators from departments examine these basics and remind them to register for licenses.

However, with such thin investigation, the illegal daycares still have gap to operate and partly meet demand of poor parents.

Thuan Giao’s population is about 9,000 while the number of immigrants is ten folds higher that number, Mai Thi Phuong, chairman of the commune’s Woman Association said.

In addition, the commune now has only one public and two private pre-schools, just able to accommodate 600-700 in the total of 2,000 children, from and below five year old.

Operation of Phung’s daycare should be halted to wait for decisions from authorized organizations, the chairwoman proposed.

Australian father gets life for drowning three sons

In Uncategorized on October 15, 2010 at 10:26 am

SYDNEY (AFP) – An Australian man was sentenced to life in jail Friday for murdering his three young sons by driving his car into a reservoir and leaving them inside.

Robert Farquharson had denied deliberately killing the boys, who were aged two, seven and 10, on Fathers’ Day 2005, saying he lost control of the car after blacking out during a coughing fit.

But a Victoria Supreme Court jury rejected his story. In sentencing him, Justice Lex Lasry said Farquharson had subjected his children to a terrifying death while his actions had devastated a number of people.

“Primary among them is your ex-wife Cindy Gambino, the mother of these three children,” Lasry said, adding that the tragedy of the case “almost defies imagination”.

Farquharson was returning home from a Fathers’ Day visit with Jai, 10, Tyler, 7, and two-year-old Bailey in September 2005 when he drove into the reservoir in southern Victoria state.

He managed to swim to the surface but the children, trapped by their seatbelts, drowned. Their mother Cindy Gambino said no sentence would ever be enough.

“I have a life sentence, so should he,” she said outside court.

Farquharson, who will not be eligible for parole for 33 years, is expected to appeal.

NATO loses 16 soldiers in three days of Afghan war

In Uncategorized on October 15, 2010 at 10:26 am

KABUL, Oct 15, 2010 (AFP) – A foreign soldier fighting the Afghan insurgency was killed by a Taliban-style bomb Friday, NATO said as it announced that another soldier died from injuries sustained in a similar attack a day earlier.

The deaths bring to 16 the number of foreign soldiers — at least six of them Americans — to have died in the war since Wednesday, according to an AFP tally.

NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said a “service member died following an improvised explosive device attack in southern Afghanistan today”. It did not give further details.

There are more than 150,000 international troops deployed in Afghanistan trying to defeat a Taliban-led insurgency aimed at toppling the country’s Western-backed democracy.

The rebels have stepped up attacks every year since the Taliban regime was toppled in a US-led invasion in late 2001.

To root out the rebels, Washington deployed an extra 30,000 reinforcements this year as the basis of a surge strategy aimed at speeding an end to the war. About 10,000 more NATO troops were also deployed.

This year, the deadliest yet for foreign forces, 590 NATO-led soldiers have been killed, according to a toll based on that kept by the independent website, compared to 521 killed last year.

In Uncategorized on August 18, 2010 at 7:25 am

SEOUL, Aug 18, 2010 (AFP) – Three airlines will open new routes to South Korea this year, reflecting growing demand for international flights following the global downturn, officials said Wednesday.

The three are Malaysia’s AirAsia X, Orient-Thai Airlines and United Arab Emirates’ Ethihad Airways, the transport ministry said.

AirAsia X is expected to operate a flight between South Korea’s main international airport in Incheon and Kuala Lumpur in November, it said.

Ethihad and Orient-Thai will open new routes between Incheon and Abu Dhabi and Bangkok each probably in late October, a ministry official told AFP.

Hawaii Airlines is also expected to open a flight between Incheon and Honolulu in 2011, he said.

“More foreign airline carriers are opening new routes amid rising global demand for airline services and their increasing interest in Incheon,” the ministry said in a statement.

The industry has received a much-needed boost in recent months, helped by the recovery from global economic crisis, which had battered sales.

Premium ticket sales in the first half of this year jumped worldwide by 11.9 percent compared with the same period a year ago, according to the International Air Transport Association.
