Daughter of Jailed Malaysian Opposition Leader Is Arrested

A daughter of the jailed Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was arrested Monday afternoon over criticism of the country’s judiciary she made during a speech in Parliament, her lawyer said.

The arrest in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, of Nurul Izzah Anwar, a member of Parliament, heightened questions about whether the country’s sedition laws were being used to muffle dissent.
