MALAYSIAN-POLICE

(Reuters) Malaysian authorities said on Saturday they had foiled a bomb attack on top police officers and arrested 14 suspected ISIL operatives in a week-long operation.

The suspects included a senior IS member who is believed responsible for recruiting a Malaysian ISIL insurgent, Abu Ghani Yaacob, who was killed in Syria on April 17, Inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar said in a statement.

“Based on a search, police managed to seize one completed IED weighing one kilogramme, for use in a planned attack on the top PDRM leadership,” Khalid said in a statement, using the Malay acronym for the Royal Malaysian Police, and referring to an improvised explosive device, or bomb.
