    Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak on Friday dismissed as "political sabotage" a report that a probe into a state-owned investment fund had found hundreds of millions of dollars were transferred to his personal bank accounts. The investment vehicle, 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB), denied any wrongdoing after the Wall Street Journal said that nearly $700 million moved through government agencies, banks and companies linked to the fund before ending up in Najib's accounts. The newspaper said the original source of the money was unclear, and noted that the government investigation did not detail what happened to the funds that allegedly went into Najib's accounts.

  • Airstrikes hit multiple IS targets in Syria stronghold

    US-led coalition forces said they carried out a series of 16 airstrikes Saturday on the Islamic State in its Syrian stronghold of Raqa, in one of the biggest assaults on the extremists. "The significant airstrikes tonight were executed to deny Daesh (IS) the ability to move military capabilities throughout Syria and into Iraq," spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Gilleran said in a coalition statement. "This was one of the largest deliberate engagements we have conducted to date in Syria and it will have debilitating effects on Daesh's ability to move from Raqa." Coalition forces "successfully engaged multiple targets" throughout Raqa -- the extremists' de facto capital -- the statement said, destroying IS structures and transit routes.

  • Singapore activists condemn treatment of anti-Lee teen

    Prominent Singaporean intellectuals, artists and activists Saturday criticised the government's "harsh" treatment of a teenage boy behind online attacks on the late former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. In an open letter to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the former leader's son, the 77 signatories said they were "aware of the negative aspects" of 16-year-old Amos Yee's pronouncements in a YouTube video and on his blog. Yee was convicted in May on two criminal charges: wounding religious feelings in an expletive-laden video comparing Lee Kuan Yew to Jesus, and circulating an obscene cartoon of the former prime minister, who died in March.
