Kuala Lumpur: Tens of thousands of anti-government protesters, clad in yellow t-shirts, gathered in the Malaysian capital on Saturday seeking Prime Minister Najib Razak's resignation over graft allegations.

Reformist group Bersih, turned out in huge numbers for the second time in 15 months despite a police ban on the rally and the arrest of 17 activists so far.

Police blocked at least 60 roads across the city and put up barricades at entry points in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Water canon trucks and security personnel were deployed around the downtown areas.

Prime Minister Najib has remained unmoved by reports of graft allegations.
