Malaysia detains Australia senator Nick Xenophon

An Australian senator on a fact-finding mission to Malaysia says he has been refused entry because authorities consider him a security risk.

Nick Xenophon was detained at Kuala Lumpur airport on Saturday morning and will be deported back to Australia, correspondents say.

He was part of an Australian delegation scheduled to meet Malaysian officials to discuss forthcoming elections.

Mr Xenophon has been an outspoken critic of human rights in Malaysia — via redwolf.newsvine.com
