Kuala Lumpur - Malaysia, which strictly censors foreign movies and books, has decided to ban tomes with "ghostly" tales and those touching on the supernatural, reports said on Thursday.
These include books within the categories of mystery, mysticism, fantasy, occultism and superstition, he said.

"These materials will create an unhealthy picture in the minds of the readers and influence them by such far-fetched ghostly stories," he said.

However, titles such as the popular Harry Potter series would not be affected as they were deemed to be "benign", he added.
