WATER CRISIS

Malaysia expanded water rationing in and around its capital Kuala Lumpur, in a move affecting millions as drought continues to scorch a tropical country usually synonymous with torrential rain. The National water commission said over 300,000 households in Kuala Lumpur and nearby Selangor experience cuts for the whole of March, after a two-month dry spell depleted reservoirs. Malaysia tends to experience dry weather early in the year, but the current spell has been unusually long, sparking bushfires and protests from communities whose taps have run dry.
