Eight hours of the Batu Buruk riot
Ten days ago, Terengganu experienced its worst case of rioting . It has led to conflicting reports and accusations of provocation being exchanged.
The government has blamed the opposition for instigating the incident, while PAS has accused Umno of working in cahoots with the police.
Malaysiakini reconstructs the incident in this timeline, based on a visit to the state, interviews with eyewitnesses, opposition party members and the police.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
