Hong Kong news in brief
1a. Hong Kong's prison inmates yield good exam results. However none have yet tunnelled into a bank vault containing US$65 million, so there's a way to go.
1b. Proving both how smart and dumb Hong Kong is in one fell swoop, a "12 year old" got eight As and a C in the HKCEE exams.
2. Two mice were found on the Star Ferry yesterday but no-one did anything about it.
3. Strep suis, "pig flu", infected its 8th Hong Kong victim, a woman who had not travelled or had direct contact with live pigs but who had handled raw pork product.
4. But Hong Kong's paper of record, the SCMP, dedicates a front page column to....itself. More below the fold.
The South China Morning Post has won special praise for its Asian Tsunami coverage at the annual awards of the Asia-Pacific region's premier newspaper organisation. It was highly commended in the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers' Association annual Newspaper of the Year Awards last night - and was also judged a clear winner in both of the awards' technical categories for excellence in printing and picture reproduction.posted by Simon on 08.11.05 at 10:51 AM in the
