Malaysia to roll out landslides preventive measures

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, Prime Minister, Malaysia, called for an examination of all houses and other structures on agricultural land nationwide to ascertain the risk they faced from landslides.

The National Land Code permitted the construction of houses on agricultural land but they must be built in accordance with the guidelines, he said after a visit to the site in Hulu Langat where a landslide killed 16 people last week.
