Hong Kong shortens the mandatory quarantine for international travellers from three weeks to two, even as the city struggles to contain virus outbreaks involving Omicron and Delta variants.

Like mainland China, Hong Kong is one of the few places left in the world still pursuing a "zero-COVID" strategy that has largely kept the virus at bay but left the finance hub internationally isolated.

The emergence of the highly transmissible Omicron variant saw the city increase its travel restrictions in December -- slamming borders shut to arrivals from eight countries and banning transit passengers from more than 150 destinations. — AFP

China hails a WTO decision allowing it to slap duties on $645 million worth of US imports each year, calling on Washington to follow the ruling and "stop seeking excuses" in a long-running anti-dumping dispute.

But the move by the World Trade Organization does not mean China will automatically impose the tariffs and Beijing stopped short Thursday of announcing any fresh duties.

"We hope the US stops seeking excuses and takes immediate action to correct its wrongdoing in the trade remedy investigation against China," commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng says.

"The WTO ruling once again proves that the US has long violated WTO rules, abused trade remedy measures, and refused to fulfil its international obligations." — AFP

The foreign ministry says Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi told his US counterpart that Washington must "stop interfering" in the upcoming Winter Olympics in a Thursday call.

"The most urgent priority right now is that the US should stop interfering in the Beijing Winter Olympics," said Wang, adding that Washington must also "stop playing with fire" on the Taiwan issue. — AFP

Twitter suspends a bot account for spoiling the solution to the next day's Wordle, the wildly popular internet word puzzle.

The game, which only offers one puzzle per day, has amassed millions of players since it came online last year. 

But the Twitter profile @wordlinator seemed determined to ruin the fun for participants posting their scores on the social media site. 

"The account referenced was suspended for violating the Twitter Rules and the Automation Rules around sending unsolicited @mentions," a Twitter spokesperson tells AFP.  — AFP

Australian researchers have discovered a strange spinning object in the Milky Way they say is unlike anything astronomers have ever seen.

The object, first spotted by a university student working on his undergraduate thesis, releases a huge burst of radio energy three times every hour.

The pulse comes "every 18.18 minutes, like clockwork," said astrophysicist Natasha Hurley-Walker, who led the investigation after the student's discovery, using a telescope in the Western Australian outback known as the Murchison Widefield Array. 

While there are other objects in the universe that switch on and off — such as pulsars — Hurley-Walker said 18.18 minutes is a frequency that has never been observed before. 

Finding this object was "kind of spooky for an astronomer," she said, "because there's nothing known in the sky that does that." 

The research team is now working to understand what they have found. — AFP

The UN Security Council will meet Friday with a minister from ASEAN chair Cambodia to discuss the chaotic situation in Myanmar, one year after a coup ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, diplomatic sources say.

Cambodia currently heads the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and its ASEAN envoy to Myanmar, Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn, will attend the closed-door talks along with United Nations special envoy for Myanmar Noeleen Heyzer, the sources told AFP.

The minister is expected to report on the controversial visit to Myanmar in early January by Cambodia's strongman ruler Hun Sen, who met with the junta in the first foreign leadership visit since the generals seized power last February. — AFP
