Malaysia blocks British sex education book

KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - Malaysia has ordered bookstores to stop selling a children's sex education book by a British author over concerns it could 'corrupt people's minds' in the conservative Muslim-majority country. Malaysia's Home Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that bookstores were no longer allowed to sell Where Did I Come From? by Peter Mayle pending a review. Mr Abdul Rahim Mohamad Radzi, a senior ministry official, said in the statement that the book would be banned 'if it is proven to contain elements harmful to public morals and corrupt people's minds'. 'The ministry has obtained the cooperation of book sellers around the country to immediately stop sales until the review is completed and a decision is made,' he said.
