2. Deadly bomb attacks hit Thailand
A string of six bomb attacks in Thailand has left at least four people dead, ABC News reports.
The attacks — which hit several popular tourist towns across the country — have injured dozens of people including 10 foreign tourists.
Coordinated bomb blasts hit Hua Hin late on Thursday and early on Friday. Two explosions then hit the southern province of Surat Thani around 8am local time on Friday, followed by another bomb attack in Phuket at about 9am. The last explosion occurred near Patong beach, which is popular with Australian tourists, Guardian Australia reports.
Thai police detained two men for questioning over the blasts.

3. Missing mother’s clothing shop was closed down due to financial difficulties
The Ristevski family had been in about $600,000 debt for years, and a real estate group and financial company had lodged a caveat over the family’s home, preventing the house’s sale.
That action was believed to have been taken because the family was falling behind in rent for the Ristevskis’ Broadmeadows Bella Bleu store, as The Australian reported last month.
The national newspaper has now revealed that just months before Ms Ristevski disappeared, that store was shut down due to financial woes.
