Malaysiakini:
A Form Five student, who caused controversy at his school by clicking 'Like' on a pro-Israel Facebook page, is being investigated for sedition, Utusan Online reported.

Nibong Tebal police chief Abdul Rahim Hanafi said that he is investigated under Section 4(1)(a) of the Sedition Act 1948.

The police have taken the statements of the students and a teacher from the Simpang Ampat, Penang school, at the Seberang Perai police district headquarters yesterday.

Several others involved will soon be called to assist with the investigations.
This has really gone overboard!
