Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s nose bled halfway during a press conference that ended abruptly.

Dr Mahathir’s escorts ushered the 94-year-old prime minister away after he took several questions from journalists at the MPOB International Palm Oil Congress and Exhibition 2019 Monday morning.

One of his officers who declined to be named confirmed that his nose bled but only for a short while, adding that the bleeding had stopped and the Prime Minister had resumed work.
