Car thief nabbed after being mobbed at parking lot

Posted: 06 Feb 2014 08:00 AM PST

PETALING JAYA: A man who was set upon by a group of people for attempting to steal a car has been arrested.

"He tried to break into a car with the help of an accomplice at a parking lot of a supermarket," South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Kamarul Zaman Mamat said.

"However, passers-by who saw them in the act stopped them," he said.

ACP Kamarul Zaman said the man was soon arrested near the supermarket at Bukit Tinggi, Klang, on Sunday.

The man, he said, had retaliated against the passers-by by attacking them with a stick.

"One of them was struck in the head," ACP Kamarul Zaman said.

He said the passers-by managed to subdue the man and tied him up.

"Unfortunately, his accomplice fled before anyone could catch him," said ACP Kamarul Zaman.

A video recording of the incident, which went viral on Facebook, showed the man being beaten up by people.

"Police arrived at the scene soon after to break up the fight.

"The suspect was brought to the Klang police station to assist in investigations," ACP Kamarul Zaman added.

K-pop group 2NE1 set to rock KL

Posted: 06 Feb 2014 08:00 AM PST

PETALING JAYA: South Korean girl group 2NE1 will perform their first full-fledged concert in Malaysia on May 23, which is slated to take place at Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur.

The "2014 2NE1 World Tour All Or Nothing" is the group's second global outing.

Members CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy will perform their previous chart-topping hits and the latest singles such as Falling In Love and Missing You, and fans can also anticipate new songs from their upcoming album, All Or Nothing.

According to 2NE1's official Facebook page, the tour's production team will include co-directors Travis Payne and Stacy Walker, who worked on label-mate G-Dragon's "One Of a Kind" world tour in 2013.

The tour will kick off on March 1 with a two-day concert at SK Handball Stadium in Seoul and will continue in 13 cities in nine countries, with a total of 17 shows at this point.

Known for their diverse musical stylings, which are influenced by genres such as hip-hop, reggae and Korean teurouteu (trot), the fashion-forward female members have made their mark in the frenetic K-pop scene since their 2009 debut with the hit single, Fire.

On March 23 last year, 2NE1 performed several of their hits, including Can't Nobody and Lonely, at the two-day Twin Towers Alive 2013 concert in Plaza KLCC.

In 2012, their Dec 8 appearance at Stadium Malawati in Shah Alam was cancelled, with organiser Running Into The Sun attributing the cancellation of the "2NE1 Global Tour 2012 In Malaysia New Evolution" to technical issues.

KOTA KINABALU: A ward of the Likas Women and Children's Hospital has been quarantined after two adults and five children there were tested positive for the H1N1 flu virus.

Sabah Health Department director Dr Christina Rundi said the entire Melur 2 ward at the hospital has been quarantined following discovery of the virus on Monday.

Dr Christina said another case of the disease had also been reported in the east coast Sandakan district.

"Medical officials were alerted of the possible H1N1 outbreak at the hospital on Monday resulting in 31 people being screened for the disease.

"All seven individuals who were tested positive for H1N1 had shown typical symptoms of the ailment," Dr Christina added.

She said anti-viral treatments had been given to the affected patients while screening was being carried out on all those exposed to the disease including hospital staff.

She said face-masks had been provided to patients, staff and visitors to the affected ward while all leave for hospital personnel had been frozen for now.

Dr Christina said there were 944 cases of the disease reported in the state in 2009 and the figure dropped to 154 cases a year later.

The number of H1N1 cases in Sabah subsequently plummeted to just six for the whole of last year.

"The situation as of now is under control and everything is being done to control the spread," she added.

The highly contagious H1N1 virus was responsible for the global flu pandemic in 2009. Similar to other flu strains, H1N1 is an infectious respiratory virus that can begin in the nose, throat, or lungs.
