Two survivors of a fatal encounter between a Chinese boat and Taiwan's coast guard in the waters off Taiwan's Kinmen islands have disputed the coast guard's account of the incident. Members of the U.S. House Committee on China including chair Mike Gallagher are in Taiwan and have met with President Tsai Ing-wen and President-elect Lai Ching-te. And the death in prison of a man with diabetes has brought into question the provisions in Taiwan's penal system for inmates with special medical or dietary needs. Also:
- Jaime Ocon reports from the Singapore Airshow on the cutting-edge military and civilian drones on display.
- A weather station in southern Taiwan has recorded a temperature of 37.7 C, smashing the previous record high temperature for the month of February.
- "Botanical doctors" are increasingly playing a role helping Taiwan's farmers keep their crops healthy, though some medical associations bristle at them calling themselves physicians.
