Over 2,000 fall ill in Malaysia after toxic waste dumped

Kuala Lumpur: More than 2,000 people, including many children, have fallen ill after toxic waste was dumped in a Malaysian river and emitted hazardous fumes over a wide area, an official said Friday. About 200 schools and nurseries have been closed in the affected area in southern Johor state after a lorry dumped the waste last week. People who inhaled the fumes suffered from nausea and vomiting, and a handful were left in critical condition. (AFP)
