Bersih convoy disrupted by scuffles, media threatened

What was supposed to be a calm event for Bersih's convoy turned ugly following scuffles between the electoral reform group's supporters, anti-Bersih individuals and media practitioners.

As part of its activity today, the convoy had split itself into three groups to distribute flyers to locals in Kuala Selangor in relation to the Bersih 5 rally.

The group stationed at the local Giant hypermarket, however, first saw a group of men on motorcycles - about 20 of them - circling the area twice.

It was thought that that would be the only case of intimidation but the situation started to change when Umno Youth exco leader Armand Azha Abu Hanifah arrived.

Armand and a Bersih supporter exchanged a handshake and a hug but a man beside Armand suddenly started provoking the Bersih supporter.
