Malaysian man sues runaway bride for $360,000

A Malaysian man is suing his former fiancee for more than $360,000 for leaving him just six hours before their wedding.

Lawyer Latifah Ariffin says 32-year-old Masran Abdul Rahman and his family were distressed and deeply embarrassed when Norzuliyana Mat Hassan called off the June wedding at the last minute.

Latifah says Masran had invited 1,200 guests to the reception and was seeking compensation for damages and defamation from Norzuliyana and her father.

The suit was filed Monday in a court in northeast Kelantan state.

Latifah said Tuesday that Norzuliyana didn't give any reason for backing out of the arranged marriage.

Norzuliyana could not immediately be reached for comment.
