5000 turn up to greet Anwar at Padang Timur, PJ

Malaysia's Anwar says Najib likely headed to jail

Lee was quoted as saying during the debate on the President's address today that Singapore needs to pay close attention to the relationship with its closest neighbour Malaysia.

Earlier Wednesday, Mahathir said the government will make arrests as soon as there is clear evidence and reiterated that there will be "no deal" for Najib in the scandal.

How Mahathir and Anwar will get along, along with whether and when the prime minister will stand aside for the man who built the opposition alliance, is one of the biggest questions facing Malaysia. State news agency Bernama said several dozen policemen were also seen at a luxury condominium in another district of the capital, Kuala Lumpur, where Najib has an apartment.

Mimie Lai, 45, said she came to "see what happens to the ex-prime minister and all the scandals..."

During the 1990s they were political allies, serving as prime minister and deputy PM respectively.

2 dead in CT , thousands without power after storms strike
In Pennsylvania, a man was also killed as a result of the storm after a tree fell on a auto in the Poconos, WNEP-TV reported. In Connecticut, the state's two major utilities reported 90,000 without electricity, most in the western part of the state.

Speaking about Mr Mahathir's behaviour during his first prime ministership, Ibrahim Suffian, executive director of the Merdeka Center, an independent survey group, said: "Many of his allies suffered during his time as prime minister".

Malaysia's reformist icon Anwar Ibrahim has been freed from custody after receiving a royal pardon, paving the way for a political comeback following his alliance's stunning election victory.

"Long live Anwar", supporters on motorbikes yelled as they pull into the royal compound in support of their newly-freed leader.

Mahathir, who became the world's oldest elected leader at 92 in the elections and previously served as Prime Minister for 22 years until 2003, has agreed to hand the baton to Anwar.

Following his release, Anwar said he would give full support to the government led by his ally-turned-foe-turned-ally Mahathir Mohamad, but would not immediately be part of it. Asked about their past feuds, he said "I have forgiven him", adding "why should I harbor malice against him?"

Apple's California Self-Driving Car Test Fleet Continues to Grow
APPLE IS RUNNING more than 50 autonomous cars around California, the state's Department of Motor Vehicles has told Mac Reports . Chief Executive Officer at Apple, Tim Cook called self-driving a core technology that we view as very important.

Anwar was initially scheduled to be released on June 10, 2018, after his five-year sentence that started on Feb 10, 2015 was reduced for good behaviour.

Anwar's release caps a remarkable reversal of fortune made possible by the BN's unexpected electoral drubbing a week ago.

Anwar spent six years in jail on much-questioned charges of sodomy and abuse of power.

The de facto leader of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) left the hospital and headed to the palace, where he was granted an audience with the King at noon, together with Dr Wan Azizah and Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali.

Sankara Nair, Mr Anwar's lawyer, said the opposition politician had seemed "composed and was quite upbeat, but also quite nervous" as he prepared to leave the the hospital.
