Source: AlJazeera English News on 2nd July
Twenty-four men were killed in the Malaysian village of Batang Kali by British soldiers in 1948, when colonial forces were fighting communist fighters.

This week, a group of Malaysian lawyers have travelled to London to try to convince the government to investigate the shootings.

Laura Kyle reports from the scene of the incident, north of Kuala Lumpur.

  1. Courageous women and men indeed, without their brave stance and pure conscience we would never know the full story!

    The bones are still warm, a new autopsy of all the bodies will prove beyond any doubt of the heinous crime of killing in cold blood.
    We salute the soldiers who have owned up and told the full story, they are courageous and honest men.
