KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (CNN) -- More than 5,000 Hindu protesters met water cannons and tear gas in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, on Sunday while demanding equal rights and consideration from the government.
Ethnic Indian protesters are sprayed with water by Malaysian riot police in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.
Despite clashes with police, there were no reports of injuries during the planned protest. Some protesters threw rocks at the water cannon trucks, but others were urging peaceful demonstrations.
Public transportation into the city was stopped, hindering protesters from coming in.
Police stopped protesters as they tried to take a petition to the British High Commission. Talks were under way for authorities to allow six protesters to deliver the petition, should the crowd disperse.Earlier this month, riot police used water hoses and tear gas against thousands of protesters demanding electoral reform, the largest demonstration in Kuala Lumpur in nearly a decade.
