A New Zealand man is in hospital in Malaysia with injuries suffered in attack in Kuala Lumpur, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed today.

A ministry spokesman said a consular representative of the New Zealand High Commission had been in contact with the man to check on his welfare.

''Consular staff will continue to provide updates and advice to the family of the New Zealander.''

He said the man's family declined to comment publicly and asked for privacy.

Reports surfaced yesterday in Malaysian online media, which stated a 47-year-old Kiwi tourist was slashed by a taxi driver following an argument about a woman in a hotel room in Jalan Changkak, Bukit Bintang on Friday.

The reports said the tourist, a beekeeper from New Zealand, suffered cuts on his face and neck in the 12.30am incident.

It quoted Kuala Lumpur police stating the victim managed to escape the room and seek help.
