A French climber who calls himself "Spiderman" has been thwarted in his latest attempt to scale one of the world's tallest buildings.
Alain Robert was hauled in and arrested as he reached the 60th floor of the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
It is the second time he has tried to climb the building, having failed in his first attempt exactly 10 years ago.
Mr Robert climbs without rope. He has had several serious falls, resulting in fractures and operations.
He has climbed 70 buildings in the course of his career, including the Eiffel Tower, London's Canary Wharf building, New York's Empire State Building, and Chicago's Sears Tower.
Hundreds of onlookers watched as he made his ascent.
However, he quickly abandoned his climb when officers - while clapping him - ordered he come in through a window.
They say he will be charged with trespassing if he is discovered to have undergone the mission without obtaining permission.
If found guilty, he faces a fine of $600 or up to a year in prison.
A fellow Frenchman visiting the towers was not impressed.
"There are always people who seek to distinguish themselves from others," said the president of the French senate, Christian Poncelet.
"But he could have done it elsewhere."
