MALAYSIAN POLICE FLUSHING OUT FOREIGNERS WITH LINKS TO TERROR GROUPS

KUALA LUMPUR–Police are conducting integrated operations to flush out foreigners suspected of having links with terrorist groups before the 2017 Kuala Lumpur SEA (Southeast Asia) Games beginning on Aug 19.

Federal Police (Bukit Aman) Special Branch Counter-Terrorism Division principal assistant director Ayob Khan Mydin Pitchay said the operations around the Klang Valley were being carried out to ensure the sporting event proceeded smoothly.

“We will detect and take action against foreigners suspected of having links with terrorists, especially those involved in activities in Syria,” he told reporters here.

He said the operation had the cooperation of the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) which loaned equipment to detect radioactive elements.

Earlier, Ayob Khan had headed a six-hour operation on Sunday around Jalan Masjid India, a popular spot for foreigners in the federal capital here.
