This picture taken on December 6, 2016 shows Malaysia's former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad speaking during an interview with Agence France-Presse at his office in Putrajaya.

Asked how many police officers were stationed at the event prior to the pandemonium, the Shah Alam top cop said there were plainclothes officers on the scene.

The commotion inside the hall also saw another flare tossed towards a section where media members were seated.

Satellite images 'show North Korea is preparing for a submarine missile launch'
The pictures, which were taken in May, are said to show similar preparations to those that took place before the communist nation's last submarine launched missile test in August past year .

Mahathir, who had been taking questions from the audience when the violence erupted, was escorted from the building and was unhurt, Syed Saddiq said.

Other politicians there were Dap adviser Lim Kit Siang, Dap secretary general Lim Guan Eng, PPBM president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and PPBM Youth chief Syed Saddiq Abdul Rahman. More than a dozen people had died in a clash between followers of a Muslim sect and the police in Memali, Kedah, in 1985. If we want to delve in old issues, we can never unite.

Opposition lawmaker Azmin Ali said: "Najib is using gangsterism to shut Mahathir's mouth. This is a cowardly act".

North Korea reacts to Trump comment
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has also sought to promote dialogue and diplomacy over military action. Mattis paused for a long moment Thursday before discussing the possibility of nuclear confrontation.

It was not clear who was behind the violence but it illustrates that political tensions are rising before elections which Najib must call by mid-2018, and that Mahathir is viewed as a potent threat.

Mahathir has been spearheading calls for Najib to resign over a multibillion-dollar financial scandal in indebted state fund 1MDB, which is being investigated in several countries for money laundering. Najib did not attend the event.

Najib, whose United Malays National Organization has been in power at the head of a coalition since independence in 1957, and 1MDB deny wrongdoing.
