Meanwhile the Malaysian police have been busy again and thwarted a plot hatched by radical Islamic militants influenced by Iraq's extremist jihad group, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The 19 suspected militants arrested from April-June had plans to blow up pubs, discos and a Malaysian brewery of Danish beer producer Carlsberg, revealed Ayob Khan Mydin, deputy chief of the Malaysian police counter-terrorism division.
Ayob Khan told AFP the group, all Malaysians, had visions of establishing a hard line Southeast Asian Islamic caliphate spanning Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Singapore. "From interrogating them, they talk about [Islamic State] ideology, including the killing of innocent people and also Muslims who are not in their group," he said, demonstrating that the Malaysian authorities are better at eliciting information from captured terrorists under detention. Thanks to folks like him, Singaporeans can sleep nights. Ayob Khan has to be grossly underpaid.
