    Police in Malaysia have fired tear gas and arrested hundreds of protesters in the biggest opposition-backed rally in years.

    More than 20,000 demonstrators massed across Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, demanding electoral reforms, activists said.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas has more from the capital.
