Embattled leader speaks at 10,000-strong rally - Malaysiakini

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim spoke at a 10,000-strong rally tonight to fight back over allegations of sodomy that he said were orchestrated by the government to keep its grip on power.

Anwar, who spent six years in prison before a stunning return to politics in elections in March, has lodged a defamation suit over the allegations - the same charge that put him behind bars in this Muslim-majority nation in 1999.
