UMNO leaders attend PAS general assembly amid speculation of alliance | Video

(Updated: )

In Malaysia, all eyes on Islamist party PAS's general assembly as top leaders from the country's former ruling party, UMNO, attend for the first time in years. Their attendance at the meeting in Terengganu has intensified speculation of their friendly ties as opposition parties, being formalised into an alliance.
