CORONAVIRUS | Defence Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob today hit out at Al Jazeera for being unethical in producing what he described as a deceptive documentary over the government's handling of the undocumented migrant population during the Covid-19 outbreak.

In a daily press conference from Putrajaya, Ismail said that what was reported in Al Jazeera's 101 East documentary episode called Locked Up in Malaysia's Lockdown was a lie as the government did not specifically target migrants, but everyone located in those areas specifically hit hard by Covid-19.
