Former Malaysian monarch passes away

Sultan Iskandar of Johor, who was the eighth constitutional monarch of Malaysia, passed away at Johor Bahru on Friday, according to well-placed diplomatic sources and some media reports from Kuala Lumpur.

However, there was no authoritative announcement until late on Friday night. Malaysia's national news agency merely reported that a Regent was appointed in the Johor State following Sultan Iskandar's hospitalisation.
