By Stefanie McIntyre HONG KONG, Feb 12 (Reuters) - A decade after taking up the sport because she liked her father's outfit, Hong Kong's Ng On Yee finds herself on the brink of snooker history as she embarks on a mission to reach the main draw of the men's world championships. Reanne Evans made an unsuccessful bid to achieve the feat last year and Ng, who ended the Englishwoman's 10-year reign as world champion in April, will have to beat three men to get through qualifying in Sheffield, England in April.

The disappearance of Lee Bo, who holds a British passport and published books critical of Chinese politics, was a "serious breach" of an agreement signed with Beijing before the city was handed back to China in 1997, said foreign secretary Philip Hammond in a new report. There are still question marks over what has happened to Lee, 65, the only publisher to have disappeared from Hong Kong.

The losses in Japan came as the yen pushed to more than 16-month highs against the dollar. Analysts say there is growing concern central banks are running out of ideas to provide support, with Sweden's saying it would push its interest rate further into negative territory, weeks after Japan adopted the policy for the first time.
