    • Witnesses estimated as many as 20,000 demonstrators took to the streets of Kuala Lumpur on Saturday in defiance of government warnings for people to shun the rally against the Internal Security Act, which allows the indefinite imprisonment of people regarded as security threats.

    • Railway traffic in the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) ground to a halt Thursday after train drivers went on strike to protest government plans to cut salaries in the sector by 10%.
