The Malaysian floods in pictures (3)

Thousands of commuters going back to their hometowns for the Chinese New Year holidays were hampered by floods on trunk roads and a section of the North-South Expressway.

Floods and landslides also forced Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) to cancel several train services to the east and south.

A KTM statement said that among the affected services were Ekspress Rakyat connecting KL Sentral and Singapore, and Ekspress Sinaran Timur connecting Kuala Lipis and Singapore.
