Veteran Malaysian leader Mahathir scores shock election win

Veteran Malaysian leader Mahathir scores shock election winBy Liz Lee and Fathin Ungku KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – An alliance of opposition parties spearheaded by Mahathir Mohamad won Malaysia’s general election, official results showed on Thursday, setting the veteran strongman on course for a return to the prime minister’s Office he occupied for 22 years. Mahathir’s stunning defeat of the coalition that has ruled the Southeast Asian country since independence from Britain six decades ago means that, at the age of 92, he will become the oldest elected leader in the world. Official results showed that Mahathir’s Pakatan Harapan (Alliance of Hope) had won 113 of parliament’s 222 seats, clinching the simple majority required to rule.

The US Geological Survey cautioned that Kilauea volcano could blast “ballistic blocks” potentially weighing multiple tonnes as far as half a mile away. The risk of explosions is rising as a lava lake within a volcanic crater drops, which could result in water seeping in and setting off steam-driven blasts.
