COLOMBO, May 19 (Agencies): Sri Lanka said Friday it will demolish an estimated 10,000 illegally built homes and offices in Colombo, a day after a seven-storey wedding hall collapsed, killing one and wounding 23.

BEIJING, May 15 (Agencies): The China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which passes through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), is not aimed at "third parties" and doesn't affect Beijing's position on the Kashmir issue, the foreign ministry said on Monday.
