Two objects were seen from the air late Sunday some 50 miles (80 kilometres) off Tho Chu island, in what Vietnamese authorities said could be a breakthrough sighting of debris from the disappeared jet. The discovery has helped Vietnamese sea and air teams refine their hunt for Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 to a zone near the small island off Vietnam's southwestern tip. "Two boats left this morning to patrol all maritime zones around Tho Chu Island where we discovered the two objects." Two large oil slicks -- suspected to be caused by aircraft fuel -- were seen on Saturday off Tho Chu.
German football legend Uli Hoeness, boss of champion club Bayern Munich, will face a high-profile tax evasion trial from Monday, accused of having stashed away millions in Switzerland. The folksy 62-year-old Bavarian club president, who also runs a flourishing sausage company, was arrested and bailed almost a year ago in a scandal that rocked German sport and politics. Hoeness has stayed on so far as president of the European champions, amid expressions of loyalty from fans, players and corporate sponsors such as Adidas, Audi, VW and Deutsche Telekom. But a conviction would likely spell the end of his illustrious football career and possibly a stint in jail, the usual punishment in Germany for tax evasion above one million euros.
