Lovers fined buffaloes

KUALA LUMPUR: A news report said a Malaysian court has ordered two lovers to pay a fine of four buffaloes and a pig after they were found guilty of having an illicit affair. The Star newspaper said the Native Court in Penampang district on Borneo island ruled on Friday that the man and woman must compensate their communities with the animals, valued at about $1,800, for their tryst. They were also fined $300 each. The man’s wife filed a complaint last year after finding her husband and her colleague at the man’s second home.
