KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak's chief of staff and a former ambassador to the United States, who was also a senior member of Najib's party, were among six people killed in a helicopter crash near the capital, officials said on Sunday.

Witnesses told state news agency Bernama they saw the helicopter explode in mid-air before it crashed into the ground in the town of Semenyih outside Kuala Lumpur late on Saturday.

The Prime Minister's Office said the helicopter was carrying guests back from a wedding reception for Najib's daughter.
