Top 5 At 5: Langkasuka, Mass Hysteria and Picketing In Perak

Today's top 5 stories are:

1. Some questions being raised on the one-month jail sentence of an elderly man who stole essential goods from a supermarket.

2. A picket happening in Perak by employees of a cement plant company.

3. An outbreak of mass hysteria among 50 students at a secondary school in Negeri Sembilan.

4. The collusion of two Malaysian navy helicopters in mid-air during a parade rehearsal, which killed all 10 crew members on board.

5. And our top story today: Activists pushing back against the exploration project at the Langkasuka Basin, citing harm to marine biodiversity.
