ABC Four Corners team arrested in Malaysia

AN ABC Four Corners crew has been detained by Malaysian police after trying to question Prime Minister Najib Razak over a corruption scandal.

Reporter Linton Besser and camera operator Louie Eroglu were arrested in the city of Kuching on Saturday night, after approaching Mr Razak on the street.

Both were released without charge on Sunday, but have been told not to leave the country.

Their passports were initially seized but have since been returned.

A police statement obtained by the AFP news agency said they were held after they crossed a "security line and aggressively tried to approach the prime minister".
