BANDA ACEH - Thousands of villagers forced from their homes by floods in Indonesia have returned to begin cleaning up as neighbouring Malaysia braces for another deluge. More than 140 people were killed in the landslides and floods in Indonesia's Aceh and North Sumatra provinces. Officials say aid is getting through to many of those in need but heavy rain is still blocking shipments to some isolated areas.
Meanwhile in Malaysia, weather forecasters are predicting that heavy rain will continue in flood-hit areas. Officials say three states including Johor, the hardest hit, would remain on red alert.
