• Bersih observers’ attempt to force reporters to leave leads to heated argument

    KUALA LUMPUR: A heated argument broke out between Bersih 4 rally security observers and a group of reporters near Dataran Merdeka here about 12.30am today. The incident happened near a police barricade there when the Bersih secretariat personnel tried to shoo away media members who were covering their 34-hour rally which ended 15 minutes past midnight. The NST was at the scene, and saw some 30 Bersih observers forming human chain by holding hands together in a line, before they started marching away from the front of the barricade in an attempt to force reporters to leave the area.

  • Football: Bogeymen Swansea end Man Utd's unbeaten start

    Swansea City defeated Manchester United 2-1 for the third successive meeting as Louis van Gaal's side's unbeaten start to the Premier League season ground to a halt on Sunday. United went ahead through Juan Mata early in the second half at the Liberty Stadium, but Andre Ayew equalised in the 61st minute and then set up Bafetimbi Gomis for the winner five minutes later. Van Gaal had lost 2-1 at home to Swansea in his first game as United manager last season and having also seen his team go down by the same scoreline in the return fixture, he was given more reason to curse Garry Monk's side on the occasion of his 50th game in English football.
