KUALA LUMPUR — Thick acrid smog shrouding a huge part of western Malaysia since last week has affected shipping operations in the Malacca Strait and authorities said Wednesday that the air pollution has reached hazardous levels.

The Star newspaper reported Wednesday that a container ship ran aground due to poor visibility as forest fires in Indonesia's Sumatra and Riau provinces blanketed the region with a thick haze. (Kyodo News)
