Police unleashed tear gas and chemical-laced water at thousands of protesters who staged one of Malaysia's largest street rallies in years on Saturday. The protesters were demanding fair rules for national elections expected soon. Authorities were seen detaining dozens of people, and officials said three protesters and 20 police officers were injured. At least 25-thousand people took to the streets of Malaysia's largest city, Kuala Lumpur, hoping to pressure Prime Minister Najib Razak's ruling coalition - which has held power for nearly 55 years - to overhaul electoral policies before polls that could be held as early as June.
