Top 5 At 5: Balcony For Maids, Not!

Today's countdown includes:

5. The surge of far-right parties in the European Parliament elections. For this, we hear from Patrick Diamond, associate professor of public policy, Queen Mary University of London, to help us make sense of headlines coming out of this and what's driving Europeans to vote for far-right parties.

4. It's Barbie's 65th birthday this year, and Mattel has released nine new Barbie dolls as part of the celebration. These dolls depict some of the world's most celebrated female atheletes. We hear thoughts from gender equality advocate Yu Ren Chung, on how Barbies could have an impact on young kids, especially girls.

3. A protest that happened recently at the US Independence Day dinner in Kuala Lumpur. It was organised by Gegar Amerika, to protest American support for Israel amid the ongoing genocide in Gaza. We hear from the spokesperson of the group, Amir Iskandar about what the protest entails.

2. More updates on the situation in Sabah, after videos of squatter houses being on fire in Kampung Kalansanan.

1. A domestic worker was rescued after she managed to throw a note off her balcony, where she was made to stay, with only a pillow and a mattress.
