7 killed and more than 50,000 displaced in Malaysia

More than 50,000 people have been forced from their homes in Malaysia and at least seven are dead after the country faced some of its worst floods for years, officials said on Monday (Dec 20).

Seven people have been confirmed dead in Selangor, according to fire and rescue officials cited in The Star newspaper. With reports of others missing, the toll is expected to climb.

The rains had largely stopped by Monday, leaving residents to return to damaged properties.

Shah Alam police chief Assistant Commissioner Baharudin Mat Taib said three of the dead were found in Taman Sri Muda, Shah Alam, on Monday.

Two of them were believed to be locals, while the identity of the third deceased has yet to be determined, Sinar Harian reported.
