Police arrested a French urban climber who calls himself "Spiderman" as he attempted to scale Malaysia's 88-story Petronas Twin Towers with his bare hands Tuesday for the second time in 10 years. Alain Robert was detained as he made it to the 60th floor of Tower 2, where he unfurled a Malaysian flag to a cheering crowd below before being led away by authorities, Fire Department spokesman Christopher Chong said. "We asked him to stop, he said OK," Chong said. "He tried to climb further, but we told him no." A decade ago, Robert was also stopped on the same floor, where there is a ledge for officials to climb onto, and was charged with trespassing.
