Tens of thousands of people protested in Malaysia last weekend demanding the resignation of prime minister Najib Razak, who is embroiled in a corruption scandal.

Protesters wore the yellow shirts of the Bersih movement, which campaigns for fair elections, even though yellow clothing had been banned.

The protests follow demonstrations last week that saw 17 students arrested. 

The left wing Socialist Party of Malaysia demanded the students’ unconditional release.
