Malaysia: Al Jazeera journalists arrive at police HQ to be questioned over documentary


Al Jazeera journalists arrive at Malaysia's national police headquarters for questioning on a documentary about the arrests of migrants during the coronavirus lockdown. Malaysian officials have denounced the documentary for damaging the country's image. The probe into the Qatar-based network's programme has added to concerns about a widening crackdown on the media in Malaysia since a scandal-plagued party seized power without an election in March.
