Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Malaysia’s FTSE Bursa Malaysia KLCI Index fell 14.01, or 0.9 percent, to 1,507.28 at the 5 p.m. close in Kuala Lumpur, the first drop in four days and its steepest decline since Nov. 23. The measure advanced 0.4 percent this week, its second weekly gain.

Berjaya Media Bhd. (BMED MK), a newspaper publisher, rose 7.9 percent to 54.5 sen, after profit in the second quarter ended Oct. 31 climbed to 1.89 million ringgit ($600,000) from 127,000 ringgit a year earlier.
