Malaysian officials nab Four suspected IS-linked militants: police
KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) –
Malaysian authorities have arrested four suspected militants and confiscated a weapon along with Islamic State group (IS) documents, national police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said Saturday.
Security forces have been on high alert in the predominantly-Muslim country in the wake of deadly coordinated attacks in neighbouring Indonesia earlier this week that were claimed by IS. Seven people, including five assailants, were killed during the incident.
“Congratulations E8 CK (anti-terror unit) for arresting one male suspect on Friday at a train station…. Weapon and IS documents were confiscated (from the suspect),” the police chief said on his Twitter account.
