How Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak fought off accusations of corruption

Malaysia's attorney-general has cleared Prime Minister Najib Razak of corruption after $681m was deposited in his personal bank accounts.

The prime minister has defended his position by saying the donation was from a "brotherly nation".

Critics of the Malaysian leader say that the investigation was compromised. 

BBC Monitoring looks at how Mr Najib managed to shore up his position throughout the scandal.
