A day after one of the biggest protests ever seen in Malaysia’s capital, police were still stationed around Independence square.

A court order barring public entry was breached on Saturday when a group of Bersih protesters defied the public promise to respect police lines, and tried to rush into the square.

But, more than two hours later several protesters were beaten, kicked or slapped by police officers. Al Jazeera was aggressively prevented from filming the incident with our camera smashed to the ground and disabled.
