Today's top 5 stories are:

2. The passing of Tan Sri Joseph Kurup, one of the founding members of Parti Bersatu Rakyat Sabah.

3. Local film, Maryam Pagi Ke Malam, wins two international awards at the 21st Asian Film Festival in Rome, Italy.

4. A single mother in Terengganu is sentenced to whipping for khalwat.

5. And our top story today: The restructuring of the Employees Provident Fund, which will see a new account called Acount 3 being formed, allowing members to withdraw at any time.
