KUALA LUMPUR: The FBM KLCI slipped to a six-week low in Thursday morning trade as a fresh twist to US-China tensions arose after Huawei's global chief financial officer was arrested in connection with violations of US sanctions on Iran.

Chinese markets fell sharply with the Shanghai Composite Index sliding 1.4% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng dropping 2.6%.
