KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 16 ― The seven Orang Asli children who went missing in the jungles of Gua Musang nearly a month ago were supposed to be safe in the care of their teachers and boarding school warden, but carelessness and neglect resulted in their disappearance, parents said.

The Sekolah Kebangsaan Tolok students left the compounds of their dormitory through a broken fence and at a time when there were barely any teachers around, 40-year-old Midah Angah explained.
