Top 5 At 5: Iran Strikes Against Israel

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Sabah's Sogindai stones potentially becoming tourist landmarks. For context, Kadazandusun tribes used these stones a century ago, to dry their headhunting trophies which is why locals believe it to be haunted.

2. The death of an elephant calf in a road accident at the Gerik-Jeli road, after it was hit by an SUV.

3. The calls for Visa-free travel between Malaysia and China to be extended.

4. 10 river basins in Sarawak are set to be transformed into hydroelectric power generation sources.

5. Our top story: Iran carried out strikes against Israeli territory in response to the suspected Israeli attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus earlier this month.

For these stories, we heard from Angelica Suimin, a member of the Kadazan-dusun community; Jia Cherng, an elephant movement researcher from the Management and Ecology of Malaysian Elephants (MEME); Nigel Wong, Honorary Treasurer and Spokesperson of the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA); and Peter Kallang, chairman and founding member of SAVE Rivers.
