Korean Air Force under probe for lost files on wartime operational plan

Posted on 30 September 2011 by admin

South Korea’s Air Force is under investigation for having lost classified documents on its aerial operational plan in case of war, a military official said Friday.

Two secret military documents have been missing at the Air Force headquarters since late August, right after South Korea and the United States ended their annual military drills that involved tens of thousands of troops from the two allies, the official said.

Military authorities had combed through offices of the Air Force headquarters and its vehicles but failed to find the documents, the official said on the condition of anonymity.

“Military authorities are holding an inquiry into how the secret military documents were lost,” the official said.

The documents included the Air Force’s wartime operations guidelines and training details for pilots, according to the official.

South Korea and the U.S. ended the 10-day Ulchi Freedom Guardian exercise on Aug. 26.

Floods inundate thousands of hectares of rice in Mekong Delta

Posted on 30 September 2011 by admin

Rising floodwaters in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta have broken several dykes in provinces along the upper reaches of the river, especially in An Giang and Dong Thap in Viet Nam, inundating thousands of hectares of the autumn-winter rice crop.

In An Giang Province, rising waters broke through four dykes in Cho Moi, Tan Thanh and Chau Phu early today and late yesterday, leaving more than 2,720 ha of rice under water.

Vo Thanh Phu, chairman of the Chau Phu District People’s Committee, said the district had nearly 1,300 ha of rice inundated.
In addition, more than 400km of dykes in the district were threatened by floods, he said.

Huynh The Nang, deputy chairman of the An Giang People’s Committee, said 4,000 ha of rice were inundated in An Giang so far.

The Tien and Hau rivers, the two main tributaries of the Mekong, have been rising fast in recent days due to high tides and floods in the upper Mekong.

In An Giang Province, the Tien rose to 4.75 metres, 0.25 meter above the third warning level at the Tan Chau Station on Wednesday, while the Hau rose to 4.11 metres, 0.1 metre above the third warning level at Chau Doc Station.

In Dong Thap Province, a 30-meter section of the Ca Mui dyke in Tan Hong District’s Tan Thanh A Commune was breached on Wednesday, flooding more than 520 ha of rice.

Tan Hong People’s Committee mobilised thousands of peoples and facilities to reinforce the dyke, but surging floodwaters still overwhelmed the dyke due to its weak foundations.

Five other important dykes in Tan Hong that protect more than 3,500 ha of rice are threatened by the floods, according to the district People’s Committee.

As of Wednesday, more than 1,090 hectares of rice in Kien Giang Province were inundated, with nearly 400 ha destroyed.
Kien Giang Province’s Department of Agriculture and Rural Development has provided support of VND9 billion to farmers in Giong Rieng, Tan Hiep, Chau Thanh and Go Quao districts to pump water out of their rice fields.

Floods have also eroded several dykes and inundated 815 ha of fruit and other crops in Vinh Long Province’s Binh Tan District.
