Churches attacked in Malaysia


Three churches have been damaged in a firebomb attack in Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur, causing religious tensions to escalate after a court decision allowed non-Muslims to use the word Allah to refer to God.

The attacks have been condemned by Prime Minister Najib Razak who said that such actions would "destroy our country's harmony".
