The Confederation of Trade Unions’ Lee Cheuk-yan has accused the government of evading responsibility by rejected calls to hire its own safety supervisors at construction sites, after an accident at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge last month killed two workers. At a special Legco panel meeting, the labour commissioner, Carlson Chan, said contractors should also shoulder the responsibility. Lee says he's very disappointed with Chan's response, and tells Jim Gould that there are problems with monitoring workers' safety at sites.
Hong Kong’s ranking as most livable city to continue slipping  Listenfacebook
The Asia Regional Director of ECA International, Lee Quane, says Hong Kong’s ranking on the global list for the most livable city for expatriates will continue slipping in future. According to ECA - which provides data, software and global mobility expertise to multinational companies - Hong Kong fell to 29th position this year from last year's ranking of 28th. Four years ago, it was ranked 11th in the world. Quane tells Ben Tse why the city’s position has continued to move down in recent years.

German police investigate links to blasts  Listenfacebook
German police are investigating a possible Islamist link to three explosions that rocked the Borussia Dortmund football team bus. Dortmund's Spanish international, Marc Bartra, and a policeman were injured in the roadside blasts set off as the team headed to a Champions League game against Monaco on Tuesday night. Prosecutor Sandra Luecke said a letter found at the scene of the attack claimed responsibility for what happened. Jim Gould asked RTHK's UK correspondent, Gavin Grey, if any more information has emerged about the letter.
