BANGKOK, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Malaysian stocks fell for a
fifth session on Thursday to a more than 13-month low, while
Singapore shares hit their lowest since March, led down by
energy-related stocks as oil prices were hit by growing concerns
over the global economy.  
    Kuala Lumpur's composite index closed down 1.07
percent at 1,767.77, its lowest since Sept. 10, 2013. Among the
losers, shares of oil and gas services firm SapuraKencana
Petroleum plunged 7.3 percent to the lowest since May
    Singapore's Straits Times Index slipped 1.4 percent
to 3,154.21, with shares of Keppel Corp, the most
actively traded by turnover, down 3.7 percent.
    Late selling sent Thailand's key SET index 1.4
percent lower to 1,526.15, a more than two-month low. Decliners
were led by shares of PTT, the country's biggest energy
firm, and its units including PTT Global Chemical.
    Bucking the trend, the Philippine main index rose for
a second day as domestic investors bought shares while foreign
investors were net sellers worth 759 million peso ($16.9
million), stock exchange data showed.
