Fisherman killed after boat founders off Taiwan A mainland fisherman died and three others were missing after their boat overturned off Taiwan in strong winds whipped up by Typhoon Aere early yesterday. The Hong Kong-based Yee Hoi Tung Number One, carrying nine fishermen - all from Hong Kong or the mainland - overturned 29km off the northern port of Keelung. Officials from Taiwan's National Rescue Command Centre said they were still searching for three missing crewmen, while five fishermen were rescued. The vessel's Hong Kong owner, Yeung Shui-ming, was among those injured. Hong Kong's Security Bureau said it would offer assistance to the victims' families. Rescuers in southern Pingtung also reported one local fisherman missing after a boat overturned. Downpours in the wake of Typhoon Mindulle last month triggered floods and mudslides in central and southern Taiwan in which 29 people were killed. Hong Kong woman killed in port moresby robbery A Hong Kong woman living in Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea, died while her husband was seriously injured during a robbery. A group of masked robbers raided a supermarket run by the couple, surnamed Lau, on the evening of August 13, a report said. The woman was fatally stabbed, while her husband was seriously injured. The Chinese embassy in Port Moresby said it would help with the police investigation. Poll allies warned over smear campaign adverts A pro-democracy group has urged allies of Legco election candidates not to resort to smear campaigns by placing advertisements in newspapers. The Reverend Chu Yiu-ming, spokesman for the Democratic Development Network, said any advertisements benefiting certain parties, but which lacked consent from candidates to be included in their campaign budgets, would be deemed illegal. Mr Chu said the group would organise a survey during election day on September 12 to monitor voter intimidation or any other election irregularities.
