Malaysia has detained 13 suspected militants associated with the Islamic State (ISIS).
Malaysian police chief Khalid Abu Bakar tweeted the announcement Thursday afternoon.
He said the suspects were arrested after the police special counter-terrorism forces conducted a major raid of terror cells linked to ISIS in the country.
In his tweet, he says ISIS-related documents were seized in the bust as well.
Earlier this year, foreign governments like Australia issued travel alerts to Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur, citing possible terror attacks.
