KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) - A parked sedan rolled into the Malaysian premier's official car at parliament on Wednesday, but the prime minister was not hurt, an official said.

Prime Minister Najib Razak was on his way to parliament when a car temporarily parked at the guard house at the compound's entrance rolled back and hit his Proton Perdana, a spokesman said.

The Volvo's driver had forgotten to engage the handbrake while he got out to get a security pass to enter parliament, he said.

"The car is slightly damaged. PM not hurt," the spokesman said in a text message.
