Malaysian judge orders man to be caned for alcohol
A Malaysian Islamic court judge has ordered an Indonesian man to be caned for drinking alcohol, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.

The New Straits Times said that Nazarudin Kamaruddin, 46, had become the first person to be caned for drinking alcohol in Pahang state in central Malaysia.

"The sentence meted out to him (Nazarudin) is not meant as punishment but to serve as a lesson," Judge Abdul Rahman Mohd Yunos said, according to the paper.
