Malaysian state drops plan to spy on unmarried sex

A conservative state in Malaysia has dropped plans to recruit a network of spies to report unmarried couples having sex.

The Chief Minister in the northern state of Terengganu says the plan was scrapped after the Malaysian Prime Minister voiced his opposition to the plan.

The Prime Minister had called the proposed spy network an invasion of privacy, warning that it could also send the wrong message to foreign tourists.
