MANILA [url=]nike air max 97 kaufen[/url] , Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- Nine local communist rebels werekilled on Wednesday in an exchange of gunfire with governmentforces in northern Philippines, an army spokesman said.

Lt. Col. Isagani Nato, spokesman of the Armed Forces of thePhilippines' Northern Luzon Command, said a clash broke out betweenarmy troops and some 15 New People's Army (NPA) at around 7:25 a.m.local time in a village in Carranglan town in Nueva Ecijaprovince.

NPA is the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines,which was founded in 1968 and has been fighting a guerrilla waragainst the government ever since.

Nato said an army soldier was also wounded in the right legduring the firefight that lasted more than two hours.

Military also recovered nine high-powered firearms [url=]nike air max 97 schweiz[/url] , includingfive M-16 rifles, two M653 rifles, and AK-47, and an M-14 rifle,and eight backpacks containing the rebels' belongings.

"The villagers reported the presence of the rebels [url=]Herren Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Blau Kaufen[/url] , promptingthe military to send army soldiers to the area," Nato said.

Several Philippine administrations in past decades tried tonegotiate and reach a peace agreement with the leftist rebels butefforts remained fruitless.

Talks to end the communist insurgency hit a snag in July afterPresident Rodrigo Duterte suspended the peace talks after a seriesof NPA attacks.

Duterte, however, has recently hinted that he might revive thetalks. His spokesman, Ernesto Abella [url=]Herren NikeLab Air VaporMax Flyknit Betrue 2017 Blau Günstig[/url] , said Duterte needs to consultfirst his security cluster before making a decision to resume thetalks. Enditem

China's national badminton coach Li Yongbo declared his players were still among the best in the world but urged fans to be patient and expect occasional defeats after the host's shock exit from the Thomas Cup.

Under Li's leadership China have dominated badminton for the past decade, but unease is mounting that the team's golden era may be coming to an end.

On Thursday, China's men were knocked out of the quarterfinals of the world badminton team championship after South Korea defeated them 3-1 - the first time they have failed to reach the Thomas Cup semifinals since 1982.

Following the defeat, fans booed and hissed as the team exited the court in Kunshan, near Shanghai [url=]Air VaporMax Herren Nike Pure Platinum Weiß Schweiz[/url] , with some in the audience chanting "Li Yongbo quit!"

Li said that -despite the -upset the men's team were still among the best -globally and called on fans to be more "-understanding."

"Of course China's men's badminton team is always one of the best in the world," Li said late Saturday.

"We have to be eager for victory all the time, but we have to accept failure. If we win too much sometimes questions will come: 'Is it positive for promoting badminton in the world?' But if we lose sometimes questions will also come."

The coach said his players faced expectations similar to the Brazilian men's national soccer team and the US' basketball squad - where winning is the norm and losses are rare.

"If they lose one or two times, nobody can deny that they are still the top team in the world. So I hope all the fans have more understanding and tolerance toward us," Li said.

The head coach also stridently defended his choice to field top-ranked Chen Long as the No.1 singles player in team -competition over other top Chinese -talent [url=]Sale Herren Nike Air VaporMax Schwarz Gold[/url] , such as legend Lin Dan, despite Chen's recent inconsistent run.

Chen admitted he suffered an attack of the nerves in his 87-minute scrap with South Korea's Son Wan-ho, which Chen lost 12-21, 21-16, 15-21. Following the upset [url=]Billig Herren Nike Air Max TN Schwarz Schuhe[/url] , Chen said he was grappling with intense pressure as the world's No.1, a position which means that every opponent is determined to knock him off his perch.

Concerns are mounting that their performance at the Thomas Cup may augur poorly for China as they prepare for the Rio Olympics.

Li confirmed that Chen and Lin would represent China in the men's -singles, but cautioned that competition was fierce among badminton's elite.

In the final on Sunday, Denmark beat Indonesia 3-2, securing the nation's first world badminton team championship after -racking up eight second-place finishes over the decades.

BANGKOK [url=]Herren Nike Air Max 95 Schwarz Schweiz[/url] , July 10 (Xinhua) -- Thailand should be more determined to build high-speed rails to link the kingdom with neighboring countries and China, which will generate huge economic benefits, former governor of State Railway of Thailand Prapat Chongsanguan has said.

"High-speed rails can really change a country and bring prosperity as what we have witnessed in China," he told Xinhua recently. "I have been to China when high speed rail was not developed. I can tell how much people's lives were changed by the expanding high speed rail network there."

"I want Thailand to enjoy the same prosperity in China brought by high speed rail," Prapat added.

Thailand plans to build a 252-km railway with a maximum speed of 250kmh from the capital Bangkok to Nakhon Ratchasima in the northeastern region [url=]Kaufen Herren Nike Air Max 90 KPU Schwarz[/url] , which is the first phase of Thailand-China railway project, and Chinese technology will be introduced to build it.

The first ever high-speed rail in Thailand is set to be approved by Thai cabinet soon and the construction of the first 3.5 km section is set to start this year, according to Thai officials.

"Once the high-speed rail starts operation, it would take some 1.5 hours to travel from Bangkok to Nakhon Ratchasima while we usually have to spend more than 2 hours stuck in the traffic jam here in Bangkok, especially in rainy days [url=]Sale Damen Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Weiß Rosa[/url] , the change is tremendous," Prapat said in a seminar held by Thai-Chinese Journalists Association last Thursday.

He emphasized such a high-speed rail project will bring investment to the northeastern part of Thailand to ease the wide disparity between the capital and regional cities.
