Floods in Malaysia (KELANTAN)

Malaysia's worst flooding in a decade has forced nearly a quarter of a million people from their homes, officials said today, with the government coming under renewed fire for its perceived slow response.
The National Security Council (NSC) said that "exceptionally high" water levels had cut off rescuers from relief centres as the death toll rose to 21 across the northeast. Fifteen people died in neighbouring southern Thailand.
Most criticism was directed at Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak for his absence as the disaster unfolded after being photographed playing golf with President Barack Obama in Hawaii.
