Malaysia floods: PM Najib Razak cuts short Hawaii trip


Malaysia has been hit by the worst floods in decades along its east coast.

At least five people have been killed and more than 100,000 forced to leave their homes.

The eastern coastal states are often flooded during the wet monsoon season, but this time officials say heavier rain and stronger winds have made things worse.
