Four arrested in Malaysia on suspicion of carrying out attacks in Ramadan


Malaysian police said on Monday they had arrested four men suspected of murder and attacks in and around the capital city of Kuala Lumpur during the holy month of Ramadan.

Malaysia has been on high alert since militants linked to the Islamic state have carried out a series of attacks in Jakarta, Indonesia’s neighboring capital, in January 2016.

Among the four suspects were two Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar, Indonesian and a Malaysian, police Inspector-General Abdul Hamid Bador told reporters.
