Malaysia, southern Thailand and parts of the Philippines have been battered by heavy rain and flash floods in recent days, killing dozens of people.

Malaysia's worst flooding in a decade forced nearly a quarter of a million people from their homes, authorities said, with the government coming under renewed fire for its perceived slow response. The National Security Council said that "exceptionally high" water levels had cut off rescuers from relief centres, as the death toll rose to 21 across the northeast. Most criticism was directed at prime minister Najib Razak for his absence as the disaster unfolded, after being photographed playing golf with US president Barack Obama in Hawaii. "No matter how prepared we are, there will always be a bigger and more devastating disaster that tests the capability and resources of the country," the council said in a statement. Opposition MP Tony Pua denounced the government's reluctance to declare a state of emergency and what he described as a "complete lack of urgency" in calling a council meeting. "We are running a headless government with no urgent, cohesive and proactive response to the arising chaos," he said. Meanwhile, 15 people have been killed in neighbouring Thailand, where five southern provinces - Narathiwat, Yala, Pattani, Phatthalung and Songkhla - were still flooded. Nearly 10,000 people have been evacuated. Philippines disaster management officials reported more than 20 people were killed in the onslaught of storm Jangmi over the central and southern Philippines. But local officials on the ground said the number of dead was close to 40 people, with at least 10 others missing. Fifteen people died in a landslide in the central Samar province, while a family of 10 was swept away by floodwaters in nearby Cebu province.
