Bulldozers move into Kampung Buah Pala

PENANG, Aug 13 — Bulldozers are moving into the controversial Kampung Buah Pala to demolish the houses whose residents refused to move out of the disputed piece of land.

Police had earlier cordoned off the village as the deadline for the residents to move out ended today.

The residents had earlier refused to take up the developers’ offer of double-storey houses to move out.

Scores of residents and members of non-governmental organisations are sitting in the rain to form a human barricade to prevent the heavy machinery from destroying their homes.
