    One of Greece's harshest critics, the German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, has claimed "no one has a clue" about the possibility of the European Union reaching an agreement to prevent Greece defaulting on its debts.

    India's biggest online retailer has pulled out of a controversial deal after a social media backlash. Flipkart had agreed a deal with phone network Airtel to let customers browse its site for free, with Flipkart picking up their internet data costs. But critics said this went against net neutrality. The row comes as regulators in India are drawing up new rules surrounding net neutrality. The sardine population off the west coast of the US has plummeted and the fishing season due to start on July 1st has already been cancelled. However, sardine numbers are so low that an emergency meeting has been called to decide whether boats should be tied up even earlier. Plus, in Indonesia, home to the world's largest muslim population, there's a creeping crackdown on the sale of alcoholic drinks. And the BBC's Ali Moore reports from Singapore, where the low oil price means many drilling programmes have been delayed or cancelled, resulting in huge and expensive oil rigs simply being left idle.
