FIFA President Sepp Blatter celebrates after being re-elected following a vote to decide on the FIFA presidency in Zurich on May 29, 2015Sepp Blatter won a fifth term as FIFA president in a dramatic end to an angry campaign dominated by a corruption storm that engulfed the leadership of world football. Blatter, who had defied calls to resign, raised his arms in triumph and promised the congress to be the "commander" who "guides this boat FIFA" out of the corruption turmoil it has sunk into. The 79-year-old Blatter also indicated he would not stand again, saying he would hand over a "strong" FIFA to "my successor" in four years.

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter arrives to make a personnel announcement in the PentagonBy David Alexander and Rujun Shen SINGAPORE (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter warned on Saturday that Beijing's island-building in the South China Sea was undermining security in the Asia-Pacific and he called for a diplomatic push to solve the territorial dispute that is driving China's effort. Carter, speaking to top defense officials from across the Asia-Pacific, acknowledged that several countries had created outposts in the region's disputed islands, but he said the scope of China's activity created uncertainty about its future plans. "China has reclaimed over 2,000 acres, more than all other claimants combined ... and China did so in only the last 18 months," Carter told the Shangri-La Dialogue security forum.

Alleged on-going reclamation by China on Subi Reef is seen from Pagasa Island (Thitu Island) in the Spratly group of islands in the South China Sea, on May 11, 2015The United States on Saturday called for an "immediate and lasting halt" to reclamation works in disputed waters in the South China Sea, saying Beijing's behaviour in the area was "out of step" with international norms. To that end, there should be an immediate and lasting halt to land reclamation by all claimants," US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter told a high-level security conference in Singapore. "We also oppose any further militarisation of disputed features," he said, stressing that US forces would continue entering what he called international waters and airspace in the tense region.
