In the net: Three suspected militants being escorted by Bukit Aman officers after the swoop.

KUALA LUMPUR: In the wake of terror attacks in other parts of the world, Bukit Aman has dealt a blow to Islamic State in a targeted sweep across four states in the country, scooping up six suspected militants.

Among those arrested were two brothers, relatives of a known militant, Muhammad Fudhail Omar, who police now believe is likely to replace Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi as the top Malaysian militant in Syria.
