KUALA LUMPUR - An explosion outside a Kuala Lumpur pub on Thursday that killed one and injured 12 others is the third reported bomb attack this year, according to the New Straits Times.

On Sept 13, police arrested a man, 50, on suspicion of setting a booby trap with a hand grenade to kill his wife in Kampung Baru Subang. The suspect, a former soldier, accused Ms Chong May Lun, 40, of cheating on him.

Ms Chong was unhurt when the grenade went off under her car, but the rear fender of her Toyota Vios came off and shrapnel penetrated the boot and rear passenger seats, Bernama reported.

The department said yesterday that none of the 11 samples it tested of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Hazelnut, Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond and other products from the company’s factory had shown positive results for porcine DNA.

KUALA LUMPUR - NEW tests conducted by Malaysian authorities found that chocolate bars made by British confectioner Cadbury do not contain pig DNA, contrary to a previous finding, the country’s Islamic affairs agency said yesterday.

Cadbury withdrew two varieties of its chocolate snacks from sale in Muslim-majority Malaysia last week after government tests found traces of pork in them, leading some Islamic groups to call for a boycott on all of its products.

Malaysia’s Islamic Development Department (Jakim) said none of the 11 samples it tested of Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Hazelnut, Cadbury Dairy Milk Roast Almond and other products from the company’s factory had shown positive results for porcine DNA.
