Yesterday (Monday, June 21, 2010), the Bulldozer starts demolishes a section of the wall of Pudu Jail in Kuala Lumpur. A controversial plan to tear down part of a 115-year-old jail for commercial development in the Malaysian capital has drawn fierce criticism from heritage enthusiasts. During World War II Japanese occupation forces used the jail to hold Allied prisoners-of-war, many of whom were tortured and executed there.
As usual for the local authority without sense of preserving the heritage building, the wall is demolished.
Check out the video taken before and during the process of demolishment.
