KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - At least 13 transsexuals have been assaulted in a city in Muslim-majority Malaysia in recent months, stirring fears that a gay-bashing gang is on the loose, a report said on Thursday. The latest attack in Kuantan in eastern Malaysia occurred on Wednesday, when a transsexual make-up artist was set upon by six men on motorcycles and beaten with chains, steel bars and crash helmets, The Star newspaper reported. The victim, and a companion who tried to intervene, suffered cuts and bruises, it said. The paper quoted another friend of the victim as saying transsexuals believe the assaults were carried out by the same group of assailants, noting that the targets have not been robbed, leaving the motive for the attacks unclear.
