End of the road: One of the 17 militants detained in a blitz by the Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division in Kedah and Klang Valley.

The leader, a 45-year-old former member of the terror group Kumpulan Militan Malaysia (KMM), went to Syria in August 2014 and returned to Malaysia in December.
