US Embassy issues warning following Movida attack


PETALING JAYA: The United States Embassy in Malaysia has issued a security message for its citizens in the country following the announcement by Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar that the June 28 Movida blast was the first ever successful Islamic State (IS) attack on Malaysian soil.

“Malaysian authorities have confirmed links between the Islamic State and the June 28 explosion at a nightclub in the Puchong area of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In view of this and the recent incidents in Bangladesh, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia, the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur reminds US citizens of the need for caution and awareness of personal security,” said the Embassy in a Facebook post on Thursday.
