Malaysia activists vent anger via web

Growing use of social networking sites is posing a huge challenge to government.

    In the week following a rally by thousands of Malaysians calling for electoral reforms, anger against the government's crackdown has been growing louder.

    Most of that has been channeled through social networking sites such as Facebook, where footage of the crackdown was posted.

    The growing use of the internet for information and opinion is posing an unprecedented challenge to the government.
