KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian authorities are preparing to deport an Australian senator who said on Saturday he had been refused entry because he was considered a "security risk" ahead of a visit to discuss an election with government and opposition officials.

Independent Australian Senator Nick Xenophon said he was detained when he arrived early on Saturday at a Kuala Lumpur airport.

"I was told I am a security risk and I can't be allowed into the country," Xenophon told Reuters. He said airport officials told him arrangements were being made for him to leave Malaysia on the next available flight.
