About 300 Barisan Nasional (BN) Youth members protested at the Russian and Ukrainian embassies in Malaysia, demanding the two governments answer for what they called the “genocide” of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 passengers and crew.

Tuesday's protests came a day after Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak revealed that backroom negotiations with pro-Moscow rebels allowed Putrajaya to secure the return of the passengers’ remains recovered from the crash site as well as the plane’s black boxes.

But the protestors, all clad in black T-shirts emblazoned with “#justiceforMH17” written across their chests, said recovering the black boxes is not enough and that both governments must do more to shed light on what had happened to MH17, believed to have been shot down in separatist-controlled Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.

The likely loser in Indonesia's presidential race made a last-gasp attempt to delay the announcement of the official election results on Tuesday, expected to declare Jakarta Governor Joko "Jokowi" Widodo as the nation's next leader.

Most private tallies show Jokowi beat former special forces chief Prabowo Subianto by about five percentage points.

Prabowo has refused to concede defeat, demanding the result be delayed by two weeks to investigate allegations of mass cheating.

South Korean police said Tuesday that they have found a body of a fugitive billionaire businessman sought over April's ferry disaster that left more than 300 people dead or missing.

Police officer Wu Hyung-ho told a televised news conference that the body was found in an agricultural field in the southern South Korean city of Suncheon on June 12. He said results of DNA and fingerprint tests showed they matched those of Yoo Byung-eun.

Wu said the body was already decayed too much beyond recognition when it was found and more thorough investigation is needed to find how and when he died.

A suspect meat scandal in China engulfed Starbucks and Burger King on Tuesday and spread to Japan where McDonald's said the Chinese supplier accused of selling expired beef and chicken had provided 20 percent of the meat in its chicken nuggets.

The scandal surrounding the meat supplier, Shanghai company Husi Food Co., which is owned by OSI Group of Aurora, Illinois, has added to a string of safety scares in China over milk, medicines and other goods that have left the public wary of dairies, restaurants and other suppliers.
