Malaysia's Home Ministry warned Wednesday that people caught
distributing Peter Mayle's nearly 40-year-old sex education
book "Where Did I Come From?" could be jailed for three years.
Muslim activists complained last week that the British
author's book is obscene after noticing it in a bookstore. The
book, first published in 1973, features cartoons that narrate
the reproductive process for children ages four to eight.
According to the ministry, it contains "elements that
undermine societal morals and public interests."
