UK declines probe into Batang Kali killings

Relatives of victims killed by British soldiers nearly 65 years ago vow to appeal court's decision.

    The families of men killed by British soldiers, in what was then known as Malaya, have lost their fight for a full judicial review of the case.

    The soldiers killed 24 people at Batang Kali nearly 65 years ago, claiming they were communist insurgents.

    But now London's High Court has upheld the British government's decision not to hold a public inquiry.
