KUALA LUMPUR: A 28-year-old insurance agent who was allegedly planning to attack the Sri Lankan High Commission here in Malaysia was among seven arrested for links to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) militant group.

The arrests sent shockwaves through DAP because two of the party’s assemblymen from Negri Sembilan and Melaka were among those nabbed, while it is reliably learned that two more leaders from Penang, one of them a high-ranking state official, will be arrested today.
