PM vows strong response after recent terror attack


Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim said he was sad over the recent incidents at a time when the country is witnessing economic growth, with investments worth billions of ringgit.

PETALING JAYA: Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim has vowed a strong response to the terror attack that claimed the lives of security personnel recently.

Anwar said it was unfortunate that such an attack took place when the country was witnessing economic growth, with investments worth billions of ringgit.

“In the past week, our country was rocked by a terror attack that took the lives of our security personnel.

“I want to assure you that we will take stern action against this group and God-willing, things will be under control,” he said in a televised address this evening.

While Anwar did not go into specifics, it is believed he was referring to the attack on a police station in Johor.

Last Friday, a man attacked the Ulu Tiram police station with a gun and a parang, killing two constables and injuring another before he was shot dead at the scene.

Home minister Saifuddin Nasution Ismail later said that the 21-year old was believed to have acted alone and did not have any links to any extremist groups such as Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) as previously suspected.

The attack on the police station came soon after national footballer Faisal Halim was splashed with acid at a shopping mall in Kota Damansara, leaving the winger requiring multiple surgeries.

More recently, DAP’s Seputeh MP Teresa Kok received a death threat along with two bullets in her mailbox.

Earlier today, Bukit Aman said police have tightened the security at government buildings, high-traffic areas and key facilities in view of the recent security threats. - FMT
