Isis attempting to kidnap leaders to raise funds, say cops

The attempts by Islamic State militants to kidnap several state leaders are believed to be aimed at raising funds to spread their ideologies. Deputy Inspector-General of Police Datuk Seri Noor Rashid Ibrahim said the police believed the group was willing to do anything to achieve that goal. "The threat by Isis is serious, and the police will fight the group wherever they are to ensure they do not spread propaganda in this country," he told reporters today. He added that the country remained safe and secure, and that police were enhancing efforts to monitor the group. On Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is also home minister, said besides Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and himself were being targeted by the group. Commenting on experiment materials thought to be bombs at Aquaria, Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) on Wednesday, he said the students who had left the objects in question had no malicious intentions. According to him, the police always tried to ensure that public places and iconic locations in the country were well monitored. – Bernama, March 12, 2016.]]>
