Malaysian prime minister to be queried over $700mn

KUALA LUMPUR -- Prime Minister Najib Razak will be questioned about a donation of $700 million originating from the Middle East, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission said Wednesday.

     The agency managed to trace the source of the money, which The Wall Street Journal reported in July was credited into Najib's personal bank accounts two years ago. Those accounts have since been closed.
