Andrew Khoo, Human Rights Lawyer

Today's countdown includes:

1. Huge pushback from several quarters on the dance party that happened recently on KTM's rental service coach. KTM has said they would "improve" their guidelines.

2. Climate change and extreme weather conditions putting this year's durian crops behind schedule.

3. A group of students have been fined for cooking using a gas stove at a petrol station in Genting. Khoo Gaik Cheng, Associate Professor of the School of Media, Languages and Cultures at the University of Nottingham Malaysia weighs in on how this would impact our durian exports.

4. A Perak family who has been stateless for generations, has officially been granted Malaysian citizenship. We hear thoughts from Professor Datuk Noor Aziah Mohd Awal, Commissioner of Suhakam.

5. The International Criminal Court has applied for arrest warrants against top Israeli and Hamas leaders for alleged war crimes. This has prompted criticism from both parties, as well as US president Joe Biden, who claimed that there is no equivalence between Israel and Hamas.
