Demo against MR in Malaysia cancelled

MIC Youth and a number of non-governmental organisations have cancelled a planned demonstration against the scheduled visit by Sri Lanka president Mahinda Rajapaksa to Malaysia on Wednesday.

Its chief T.Mohan told a press conference on Sunday that the demonstration, planned to be held in front of the Sri Lankan High Commission, was cancelled following a news report that Rajapaksa would not be attending the Islamic World Economic Forum in Johor scheduled from Dec 4 to 6. (Bernama)
