Malaysia: Malaysia raids Sabah village to end stand-off

Fighting has broken out between Malaysian forces and armed men who took control of a remote part of Sabah in East Malaysia.

The men who call themselves the "Royal sulu Army" have been holding the land for two weeks.

They say they are descendants of the Sulu Sultan and have ancestral rights to the area.
