HONG KONG heartthrob Edison Chen has reportedly attempted suicide after partially nude images of him with several starlets started circulating in the Internet. 

China Press said yesterday that the singer-actor became depressed over the issue and avoided food lately.  

He had also reportedly confined himself to his home in the United States, where he fled to after the controversy erupted. 

The daily said Chen’s image hit rock bottom after the scandal came to light. Several companies which had sought Chen’s endorsement for their products have also terminated their contracts with the star. 

Farm land requestNANYANG Siang Pau quoted the Federation of Malaysian Vegetable Growers Association chairman Tan So Tiok as urging the Government to legalise other farmers tending to state land. 

Welcoming the Government’s decision to legalise 931 farmers in Perak, Tan told the daily that there were still many farmers in the country yet to be legalised. 

Last Saturday, 931 farmers from new villages in Coldstream and Kuala Bikam in Bidor; Malim Nawar and Jeram near Kampar; Kuala Kuang and Kanthan in Chemor received their offer letters from Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
