A 23-year-old man from Kota Tinggi, Johor, was beaten up by a group of men after they mistook him for a robber, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

The incident took place on Friday at about 1.30pm at a shop when the victim stopped by to use its rest-room.

It was reported that a group of men rushed in and dragged him outside and repeatedly kicked him.

They had presumed he was a robber who had snatched the bag of a woman nearby.

> Sin Chew Daily reported that Zelda, a Border Collie from Pennsylvania, United States, can balance almost anything on its nose and head.

The dog has since become an Internet sensation when owner Rebecca Johnson, 18, posted pictures of her talented pet balancing a tennis ball and biscuits on its nose, as well as a glass of water and a plate of food on its head.

Johnson said Zelda loved to play with tennis balls and had one day put the ball on the dog's head. To her surprise, the dog easily balanced the ball and she had since put other objects on her head and nose.
