  • Taiwan fighters land on highway for Chinese 'invasion' wargames

    Taiwan displays how its fighter jets can land, refuel and rearm on the island's highways as part of its largest annual exercise to simulate defence against a Chinese invasion. The self-ruled island has long lived under the threat of invasion by Beijing, which views Taiwan as part of its territory and has vowed to take it back by force if necessary.

  • Taiwan blacksmith turns Chinese artillery shells into knives

    In a contemporary twist on beating swords into ploughshares, Taiwanese blacksmith Wu Tseng-dong has forged a career converting Chinese artillery shells once fired in anger into kitchen knives. Known locally as "Maestro Wu", his workshop on the island of Kinmen -- which lies just two miles from the Chinese mainland -- is a vivid reminder of the threat of war which hangs over Taiwan.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
