JINAN Pepe World Cup Jersey , Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Volunteers in east China's Jinan city are raising funds via social media to buy 7.5 tons of cat food, which they say will be enough to feed 1,000 stray cats through three months of winter.


The fundraising was inspired by similar campaigns held earlier in other Chinese cities such as Beijing and Shijiazhuang, according to Zhao Wen, a volunteer.

STOCKHOLM, Nov. 19 (Xinhua) -- Table tennis powerhouse China unsurprisingly claimed three out of four titles at the ITTF World Tour Swedish Open here on Sunday, but it was pretty surprising that qualifier Chen Xingtong lifted the women's singles trophy at the expense of reigning Olympic and world champion Ding Ning.


Chen was riding on a magical journey this week in Sweden.

It was Chen's second World Tour singles title of the season Joao Mario World Cup Jersey , and she says it will boost her confidence to a new level.


"I lost many similar matches (seven-game thrillers) before. This time I showed much more experience, and proved myself at last," commented Chen, adding that she still had much room for improvement and currently should not be regarded as a high-quality paddler.


Ding was last featured in international tournaments in the ITTF World Tour China Open back in June. She had to withdraw from the World Cup due to injury.


"Losing the final is a bit of a pity for me, but I feel better as the matches go on, one after another Fabio Coentrao World Cup Jersey ," she said.


Coming back from a 11-6 loss in the opening game, Fan Zhendong and Xu Xin combined to beat their Hong Kong compatriots Ho Kwan Kit and Wong Chun Ting 11-5, 11-6, 11-8 in the following three games for the men's doubles title.


Later on Sunday, the Chinese duo had their head-to-head clash in the men's singles final, where second-seeded Xu uppered also recovered from a one-game deficit Eliseu World Cup Jersey , at 6-11, 11-7, 11-9, 11-6, 11-2.

PARIS, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- French President Francois Hollande will fly to Germany on Oct. 19 to participate in talks to push forward the Minsk peace accord to end conflicts in eastern Ukraine, his office said Tuesday.


At the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Hollande will meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in Berlin "to evaluate the implementation of Minsk accord and discuss the following steps of the process to settle the crisis in eastern Ukraine," the French presidency said in a statement.


The negotiations will follow the "Normandy" format, which got its name after French and German leaders succeeded to convince Putin and Poroshenko to join negotiations during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the landing of the Allied forces that made a decisive contribution to the liberation of Europe from fascism.


In February 2015, Kiev and Moscow agreed a peace deal including a comprehensive ceasefire, withdrawal of heavy weapons from the frontline of fighting, release of captives, amnesty to detained insurgents and restoration of the Ukrainian government control over the state border.


However, continued clashes in the zone have dashed hopes to fully implement the accord brokered by French and German leaders. More than 9,000 people have been killed in conflicts there since 2014.
