KUALA LUMPUR: Six Malaysian Muslims have reportedly been handed one-month jail terms for skipping prayers in violation of Islamic laws, sparking fresh concern Wednesday. Aged 17 to 35, the men had been caught having a picnic by a waterfall instead of taking part in prayers on a Friday, newspaper Harian Metro reported. They were also fined between 2,400 and 2,500 ringgit ($575-$600) each after pleading guilty Sunday in a sharia court in the northeastern state of Terengganu. They are still free on bail while they appeal the sentences.
