JOHOR BARU: Fishermen in Kampung Bukit Pulai are badly affected by the chemical waste dumped in Sungai Kim Kim near Pasir Gudang here.

The chemicals, believed to contain heavy metal used to dissolve metal at a scrapyard and a chemical factory in Kulai, were discharged into the river about a week ago, leading to dozens being treated for exposure to hazardous fumes.
