Malaysia's Prime Minister Najib Razak is fighting to save his political career after tens of thousands of people took to the streets for a second day, calling on him to step down.

Leaked documents show Najib received $700m in his personal account, money that was linked to a heavily indebted state development fund.

The prime minister denies any wrong-doing. And has slammed the protests saying they "tarnished" Malaysia's image.

But is the corruption scandal the only reason behind the protests? And what does this crisis mean for Malaysia?
