KUALA LUMPUR, March 5 (Bernama) – The security forces have launched operation to apprehend the armed intruders at Kampung Tanduo, Lahad Datu, Sabah at 7 a.m. today, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said in a statement issued here today.
The authorities had closed the main road to Puncak Setiawangsa and now the residents can use the alternative road that was built by the authorities.
The Malay Mail reported that a Bernama survey last night found DBKL mobilising the relevant machinery since 7pm to remove the rubble from the landslide.
The land that was exposed by the landslide had been covered with canvas to avoid erosion, especially if it rains.
Yesterday the authorities decided that the badly damaged bungalow caused by the Friday night landslide will be demolished to avoid further disaster.
The affected residents from the bungalows, terrace houses and shop houses that have been ordered to evacuate their buildings were busy moving out from the area.
It is reported that there are still movements in the ground around the area and it could be more dangerous if it rains.

PAS’s president Datuk Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang welcomed the suggestion for him to be appointed as the Prime Minister (PM) if the the opposition wins the 13th General Election.
So now some of PAS’s members suggested that Haji Hadi should becomes the PM instead of Anwar Ibrahim!
Do all of the opposition leaders agree with the suggestion?
Now let’s see what did some of them say about it:
“Sometimes, it can be ‘syok’ (a thrill) (to be proposed for PM post) but I ask God that Islam be the winner. After that (I) can be anything, or even die,” he said in his winding-up speech at PAS’ 58th Annual Muktamar (General Assembly), here, Sunday – BERNAMA.
PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu, meanwhile, said the party’s central committee had never endorsed Hadi for the post. “(PKR adviser Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim is the chosen one, even if Pakatan has not endorsed his candidacy in black and white,” he said. Mohamad also described the call to nominate Hadi as prime minister as merely Ulama representative Hairun Nizam’s “personal view”. “Even Lim and his son (DAP secretary-general) Guan Eng have agreed that Anwar is the choice. But we do not know what the scenario will be like 100 years from now,” he said – The Star.
Why does the senior PAS leader do not want his party’s president to become the PM?
If the Deputy President of PAS does not support his own party’s president to become the PM, then why should he be in PAS?
The consensus from all three parties in the Opposition pact was that Anwar was the candidate for prime minister. “So, whether the Ulama wing in PAS says otherwise, it makes no difference,” he said – The Star.
PAS always claims to its supporters that PAS is the strongest party in the Pakatan Rakyat.
Then if they are really the strongest party; why doesn’t their ally party, DAP supports the idea of Haji Hadi as the PM?
Anwar said he would discuss the matter with his Pakatan colleagues.“It’s okay. No problem. We will discuss in a nice manner”, he said and quickly got into his car after launching a convention on national education at Universiti Selangor – The Star.
I think Anwar tried to avoid from answering by quickly getting into his car because Anwar feels that he should be the Prime Minister and not Haji Hadi.
Now that some of PAS’s members had named Haji Hadi as Pakatan Rakyat’s PM, I wonder who else will be named as Pakatan Rakyat’s PM before the 13th General Election?
So, who’s next?
The Lebanese authorities have arrested two Malaysians aged 21 and 28, believed to be suicide bombers and suspected to be linked to the al-Qaeda terrorist organisation.
Malaysian ambassador to Lebanon Ilango Karuppannan told Bernama that, “They will be brought to court on Monday (tomorrow) and we will ask them whether they require counsel.”
On Thursday, Lebanon’s Al-Joumhouria newspaper, quoting security sources, said the Malaysians were detained by army intelligence on charges of being al-Qaeda members.
Utusan Malaysia reported that the suspects, Rafik Mohammed Aaref dan Mohammed Razin Shaaban were arrested at a hotel in Beirut Hamra.
Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman said that Wisma Putra was closely monitoring the matter.
Now many PAS leaders seems not to be very happy with and some are even angry at YB Nasharudin Mat Isa.
They sort of telling him to change and follow whatever PAS leaders said or leave PAS and quit his post as the Bachok’s MP.
The calls happened after YB Nasharudin made a statement on the issue of DAP’s chairman Karpal Singh’s objection on hudud law and later after a photo of YB Nasharudin together with the Malaysian Prime minister attending a meeting with Saudi Arabian ulama’ in Mecca.
No, YB Nasharudin said that he is not quitting PAS for UMNO…
He said, “For the umpteenth time, I have never had any intention to join UMNO. I just consider them (the leaders in UMNO) as my Muslim brothers.”
But can all of the PAS’s leaders accept the leaders in UMNO as their Muslim brothers?
YB Nasharudin also again questioned PAS about PAS’s political alliance with those who were “against Islam” and wants PAS to make a strong stand on hudud.
Now, can PAS still accept YB Nasharudin?
