Malaysian newspaper New Straits Times edits senator's speech to sound anti-Islamic and criticises his support of LGBT rights

An Australian senator who visited Kuala Lumpur last weekend to witness an anti-corruption demonstration and to meet with the leader of the opposition found himself attacked in a state-controlled newspaper article.

Nick Xenophon, an independent senator for South Australia, says the article is a 'vile defamation' and he is seeking legal action. 'I'm gobsmacked that someone could stoop so low,' he added.
