Khairy regrets mistake over Indonesian flag

Malaysia has apologized to Indonesia over the upside down printing of the Indonesian flag in a souvenir guidebook handed out at the opening of the Southeast Asian Games.

Indonesia's Youth and Sports Minister Imam Nahrawi tweeted several images, saying it was a "fatal negligence that was very painful".

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo also called for an apology but cautioned against exaggerating the incident.
