2 men arrested over firebombing of KL entertainment outlet
Kuala Lumpur police said they do not suspect an extremist motive behind the firebomb attack on an entertainment outlet in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng early yesterday morning.
Kuala Lumpur: Police have arrested two men in Batu Caves this afternoon in an investigation into the firebombing of an entertainment outlet in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng early yesterday morning.

“Based on preliminary investigations, the incident does not involve any extremist elements,” according to Kuala Lumpur police chief Rusdi Isa, who said an application to remand the two suspects would be made tomorrow.

The case is being investigated for mischief by fire and criminal intimidation, he said. Police have also taken statements from the owner of the premises and the entertainment outlet manager.

On another matter, Rusdi said the 10 suspects with ties to the Israeli man charged with possession of firearms will be released next week on police bail.

He added that three of the 10 suspects are foreign nationals and will be handed over to the immigration department for further action.

“They will be released before the remand period is up but can be recalled to facilitate investigations,” he added.
