MELAKA: Four men, including two Indonesian nationals, were arrested for attempting to smuggle about 1,500 Oriental magpie-robins worth RM300,000 out of the country.

They were intercepted around 1.9 nautical miles southwest of Pulau Besar early yesterday.

Melaka and Negri Sembilan Maritime director Kpt Haris Fadzillah Abdullah said the arrest of the suspects, aged between 33 and 55, was made after a patrol boat conducted checks on two boats that were spotted without registration numbers. — Bernama
