Malaysia PM Najib Razak sacks deputy amid financial scandal

Malaysia's Prime Minister, Najib Razak, has sacked his deputy and replaced other cabinet ministers amid a continuing financial scandal.

Deputy Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin, had publicly called on Mr Najib to explain his involvement in a state investment fund.

Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal reported nearly $700m (£449m) had been transferred from the fund into Mr Najib's personal bank accounts.

The prime minister denies the allegations.
