Section break ---- C*News Intro I'm ... w/ the top of the hour news ..... ---- E*EZ NEWS JUNE 17, 2019 ---- E*Tai-Ex opening The Tai-Ex opened down 35-points this morning from Friday's close, at 10,488 on turnover of 1.5-billion N-T. The market moved lower on Friday. The bellwether electronics sector continued to fall, led by major semiconductor stocks. The financial sector did not follow the downward trend (趨勢), and helped support the market overall. But investors are still worried about the world market, since the US and China do not seem like they will find a solution for their trade dispute (爭議) soon. And analysts say rising tensions between countries after attacks on two fuel tankers in the Gulf of Oman also left many investors wary (警惕、 小心). ---- E*More Reports of Fall Armyworm The Council of Agriculture says it is getting more reports of fall armyworms from farms around the island. Officials say there have been 65 cases of the invasive (侵入的) crop-eating bug since June 10th. All of these were armyworms in the larva stage. They were reported in 17 of Taiwan's 22 administrative areas (行政區). Officials say the larvae were destroyed and buried. The Council of Agriculture says they are taking steps to eliminate the first generation of the armyworms before they spread through Taiwan's corn and rice fields. ---- E*Filipino Game Show Host Headlines Independence Day Event in New Taipei Veteran Filipino game show host Arnell Ignacio has led Philippine Independence day celebrations in New Taipei. The event was held to celebrate the 121st anniversary of the proclamation (公告) of Philippine Independence. Ignacio drew huge crowds in New Taipei. Filipinos in the audience enjoyed his comedy and music performances along with rock band G-mal. Ignacio says he came to Taiwan to celebrate the Philippine Independence Day with Filipinos here. New Taipei Mayor Hou You-yi was also at the event. He greeted the Filipinos there in their native Tagalog. ---- E*HK Police Protesters Face Off Hong Kong police are trying to clear protesters from the streets today. A few hundred are still demonstrating near city government headquarters, after large protests Sunday. Activists have rejected (拒絕) an apology from Chief Executive Carry Lam for how the government handled legislation that would allow Hong Kong residents suspect of a crime to be sent to China for trial. Protest organizers say nearly 2 million people turned out (出席、參加) on Sunday for rallies. The protesters are demanding that Lam gets rid of the proposal for good and that she step down. They are also angry that police used tear gas, rubber bullets and other types of force, and that Lam called the clashes a riot. Calling the protests a riot means people could face more serious legal consequences if they are convicted of being involved. ---- E*US Considering Options Regarding Iran US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the US is thinking about many options, including military action, to deal with tensions (緊張) with Iran. This comes after Washington accused Iran of attacking two tankers in the Strait of Hormuz. U.S. correspondent William Denselow reports. < [CLIP] Slug: > ---- C*News Outro That was the I-C-R-T news Check in again tomorrow for our simplified version of the news, uploaded every day in the afternoon.
