SEPANG, Malaysia - Nine Australian men who had provoked anger in Malaysia by donning skimpy swimwear bearing the Muslim-majority country's national flag at a Formula 1 race were let off with no charges Thursday.
Four days after their arrest, the nine racing fans were brought to a Malaysian court to face potential charges of public indecency and national insult.
But after expressing remorse -- and receiving a dressing-down by a Malaysian judge -- they were released without charge.
