The World

March 20, 1986

Malaysian authorities imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew in the eastern state of Sabah after two people were killed in rioting by Muslims opposed to the mainly Christian state government. Four bombs exploded in Kota Kinabalu, the state capital, but caused little damage. At least two dozen bombs have exploded in the oil-rich state in the last week. The violence erupted after Chief Minister Joseph Pairin Kitingan dissolved the state legislature last month, a response to the defection of several assemblymen of his ruling party to the largely Muslim opposition.
