KUALA LUMPUR – Malaysian police conducted searches through the night and into the Thursday morning at five places linked to ousted Prime Minister Najib Razak, including the family home where he stays, a senior police officer said.

A lawyer for Najib, who was ousted from office in last week’s general election, said police seized handbags and a few other personal items from Najib’s home in connection with a money laundering probe.

A multibillion-dollar scandal at state fund 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), which was founded by Najib, is being investigated by police in at least six countries, including the United States. Najib denies any wrongdoing.
