Malaysian Murder Tied To Facebook Posts

Malaysian police are holding two men on suspicion for beating a man to death over a negative Facebook posting that he had written about a girl.

According to local police reports gathered by AFP, the deceased, 20-year-old Mohamad Amran Romli befriended a girl on the popular social network site.

Soon after, the online relationship between Romli and the girl took a bitter turn as he began posting denigrading comments about not only the young woman but her family as well.

The young woman’s brothers, decided to squelch the online battle of words by taking it to the streets.
