PENANG, Aug 22 – Nearly 100 residents of Kampung Kastam Malay village today have peacefully assembled to protest the attempt to demolish their houses.

Those who live in this area for more than 70 years have been directed out of this area to pave the way for the Housing Project by the Ideal Capital Venture Developers without any compensation.
