BUTTERWORTH: PKR supporters threw mineral water bottles at Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak when he visited the Jalan Semilang polling centre in Permatang Pauh yesterday.
Najib, who arrived at 11am, a few minutes after PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had left, was returning to his car when a group of people, believed to be PKR supporters, started throwing mineral water bottles in his direction.
Najib was not hit and he was quickly ushered into the car by his bodyguards.
Enraged Barisan supporters, who witnessed the incident, retaliated by throwing bamboo flag poles at the PKR supporters.
The two groups then started hurling objects at each other until the Federal Reserve Unit stationed there quickly moved in to defuse the situation.
Central Seberang Prai police media relations officer Supt Shaharon Anuar Abdul Latif confirmed the incident but no arrest was made
