Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak greets supporters as he arrives for a news conference at a mosque outside Kuala Lumpur, MalaysiaBy Trinna Leong and Yantoultra Ngui KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysian police raided the office of troubled state investment fund 1MDB on Wednesday, following a report that claimed investigators looking into the firm found nearly $700 million had been transferred to Prime Minister Najib Razak's bank account.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attacks but they bore hallmarks of the Islamist militant group, which has bombed several towns and cities in northern Nigeria in the last 10 days after months when they were thought to be hiding out in the Sambisa forest. Last week, more than 200 people died in a string of attacks in Africa's top oil producer, piling pressure on new President Muhammadu Buhari who is trying to work with neighbouring states to quell the insurgency.
