Malaysia Arrests 9 People over Links to IS

BANGKOK Malaysian security forces have arrested nine suspected Islamic State militants, including three foreigners, local media reported on Saturday.

The arrests were made during several anti-terrorist operations carried out between July 20-Aug. 9, according to Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar, as cited by the New Straits Times newspaper.

From the group, Malaysians Jasanizam Rosni and Saifuddin Muji, captured on Aug. 9, were wanted for their role in the attack on Movida Pub & Lounge, located in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur, which left eight people wounded on June 28.

The attack was ordered by Muhammad Wanndy bin Mohamed Jedi, a Malaysian IS member involved in recruiting militants who traveled to Syria with his wife in 2014.

The youngest in the group, a 17-year-old, was given the mission to perpetrate an attack to kill infidels in Sandakan, the second most important city in Sabah state, on Borneo Island, Khalid said.

The three foreigners, whose identities were not revealed, were arrested on Aug. 2 in Kuala Lumpur, where they were looking for false travel documents to go to the Middle East to carry out attacks.

Malaysia has captured more than 220 jihadists since February 2013, while 132 Malaysians have been fighting in the IS ranks in Iraq and Syria, according to the Interior Ministry.
