Malaysian counter-terrorism police report citizens are being recruited for ‘jihad’ in Myanmar

Malaysian police have revealed that some citizens are engaging in “jihad” on behalf of the Rohingya of Myanmar, and against the government that is allegedly supporting their decimation.

The Sun reports that Bukit Aman’s Special Branch Counter-Terrorism Division (E8) has revealed that the Islamic State is now using the plight of the beleaguered community to influence and engage new recruits.

Photos are being shared across social media on popular ISIS sympathizer sites to lure potential militants, reported one director at the “ISIS Threat to Youths Awareness Seminar,” held in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
