Updates On Bersih Rally
The police fire chemical-laced water cannon at 1,000 protestors in Masjid Jamek, near the LRT station.
The attempt by the police to disperse the crowd was without any prior warning.
Al Jazeera TV news just carried live pictures from the chaotic scenes. Its reporter says that it was a very peaceful protest UNTIL police fired chemical-laced water into the protesters.
Even into the mosque where the protesters tried to take refuge.
And then there was all the tear gas. All for a peaceful protest?
Looks like the government is trying VERY hard to make this look like an illegal riot.
Unfortunately for them, there is too much evidence, and the world now knows what's going on.
