World Briefs: China to probe capsules for human flesh
BEIJING — China will reinvestigate allegations that Chinese-made drug capsules containing powdered remains of dead babies are being smuggled into South Korea, state media reported Tuesday.
Ministry of Health spokesman Deng Haihua said an investigation launched in August found no proof that such capsules were being manufactured in China, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
Some people believe the capsules can cure a variety of diseases.
Mr. Deng said in a statement that China would investigate again following new reports of such pills being smuggled into South Korea, Xinhua reported.
The statement was not posted on the ministry’s website and calls to the ministry rang unanswered.
The Korea Customs Service said Monday it had seized capsules made in northeastern China from dead babies.
Cameron, deputy pledge continued austerity
LONDON — Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy relaunched their ailing coalition Tuesday, pledging to maintain a policy of tough spending cuts despite voters rejecting austerity in France and Greece.
Mr. Cameron, speaking at a tractor factory in southwest England, said he would “not let up” on plans to rapidly slash public spending, even after his Conservatives and junior coalition partners the Liberal Democrats took a battering in local elections.
The opposition Labor Party took control of 32 local councils and won more than 800 seats from the ruling parties in last week’s local elections.
