(04-03 10:50)

A woman from Shanghai has been kidnapped from a tourist resort in Malaysia, media reports said.
Gunmen who entered the tourist resort in the east at night also abducted a 40-year-old Filipino worker at the Singamata Reef Resort in Semporna, in the Malaysian state of Sabah.
The Star reported in Malaysia the Chinese woman had been identified as Gao Huayun from Shanghai.
Six gunmen are suspected to have entered the resort at 10.30pm yesterday.
The attackers took the two away by boat, AP reported today.
The resort website says it was set up in 2007 and, "offers both tranquility and adventure'' for anyone.
The resort says it offers diving instruction and "a dedicated instructor'' is available for "our Chinese customers.''
It is touted as the "ideal choice not only for families and groups, but also for couples, backpackers and lone travellers.''
A Taiwanese tourist was killed last year in Semporna in November and his wife was kidnapped. The woman was later rescued by Philippine security forces.
