Malaysia: protesters clash with police

28 April: Thousands of protesters gathered in Kuala Lumpur’s central square calling for changes to the electoral system, which they claim has been manipulated to favour the long-ruling coalition in forthcoming elections.
Witnesses say the protesters trampled through barbed-wire barricades set up around the heavily-guarded Merdeka Square, in defiance of a court order that had banned them from the square.
Protesters also battled with police at a train station nearby, throwing bottles and chairs at officers who responded by firing tear gas rounds.
Most of the protesters had dispersed about an hour after the violence began, but several hundred remained and were still taunting police.
