TAMIL Nesan front-paged the story of former Miss World-turned-actress Aishwarya Rai who was admitted to a Mumbai hospital after a four-wheel-drive vehicle fell on her during filming in Marathi, north India on Wednesday. 

She was initially admitted to a nearby hospital and later transferred by flight to the Induja Hospital in Mumbai. The daily added that Bollywood was in shock over the incident. 

Malaysia Nanban reported that Cuepacs postponed its submission of proposals to the Government on salary increase and other benefits for civil servants in view of the economic situation and the war in Iraq. 

The daily quoted Cuepacs president Datuk N. Siva Subramaniam as saying it was not appropriate to demand the benefits from the Government. 

Siva, who is also the secretary-general of the National Union of Teaching Profession, said the union would submit its proposals when the Government's financial situation improved. 

Malaysia Nanban also highlighted the Malaysian Medical Association president Datuk Dr N. Athimulam’s warning to Malaysians not to seek herbal treatment for SARS. 

He also advised patients with symptoms of the illness to seek treatment at hospitals and not at clinics.
