Activists take to Jln Parlimen, 26 detained

A group of some 50 activists, earlier kicked out of their camping ground at Padang Merbok, have moved their protest to Jalan Parlimen.

The group, among which include student activist Adam Adli Abdul Halim, have been lying on the main road leading towards the parliament building since 10am.

The situation became tense when the group then tried to breach the police barricade, placed 800 metres from parliament gates.

However, the protestors did not succeed in getting by as the barricade was manned by no less than 300 personnel.

Twenty-six were detained in the 11.10am incident, including student activist Mohd Safwan Anang.

This include eight others who had surrendered themselves.
