Current situation in Kuala Lumpur - Himpun 16 - Red Shirt Rally - Kuala Lumpur

Live from Kuala Lumpur..

Police beef-up at Petaling Street in Chinatown.

Shop owners around the Petaling Street have been advised to close their shop on Malaysia Day to avoid trouble.

More images of Himpun 16.. and here as well.

Situation this morning at Bukit Bintang area and Low Yat Plaza - rather deserted by comparison considering this is a public holiday where the malls and shopping complexes would be crowded normally on a public holiday. Strong Police presence in the area today. One thing nice about these videos is you get to see parts of Kuala Lumpur - which give an idea of what the city looks like for one who hasn't been here.

This is an article worth reading: Let’s see who the red shirts are

Ok, now to the issue about the haze in the country - Visibility in the Klang Valley (including KL) may have improved slightly after a bout of rain yesterday morning, but there is yet to be any significant improvement in the Air Pollutant Index (API) readings. All outdoor activities have been discouraged and called off.

After parents expressed their concerns regarding schools still operating despite the haze, the Education Ministry made a last-minute decision to order schools in several states to close for at least two days.

Pharmaniaga Berhad a pharmaceuticals company staff members distributed face masks to motorists in Putrajaya.

Just to give you an idea of what's the current haze situation in Kuala Lumpur..

The Kuala Lumpur city skyline cannot be seen at all in this photo taken at Taman Maluri, Cheras. The KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers can normally be seen when the weather is clear.SAMUEL ONG / THE STAR
