  4/27/2018Malaysian police hunt for Islamic State suspects THE AUSTRALIAN Malaysian police hunt for Islamic State suspects  A soldier stands guard in Marawi City, The Philippines,which was secured from Islamic State terrorists lastyear. Picture: AFP Malaysian police are hunting three Malaysians and one Thai national who are believed to be members of an IslamicState cell and accused of planning attacks and murdering police officers.The manhunt comes amid growing concern about the return of foreign fighters after the collapse of Islamic State inthe Middle East and continuing Islamic State linked attacks in The Philippines.Malaysia’s police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun this week said four members of a cell remained on the run, were“dangerous” and “capable of launching attacks that could pose a threat to national security”.Asked about recent events, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said Australia was concerned about the rise of “extremistnetworks” in the region.“The Australian government is concerned that experienced and motivated foreign fighters could be returning fromconflicts in Syria and Iraq, to join extremist networks in our region,’’ she said.“To combat this threat, at the recent ASEAN-Australia summit, we signed a memorandum of understanding with theAssociation of Southeast Asian Nations to confront violent extremism and defeat terrorist organisations.”The emergence of a Thai national suspect is notable as Thai authorities have talked down the possibility that thecontinuing conflict along their Malaysian border was being exploited by Islamic State.Malaysian police said the man, Awae Wae-Eya, was from Narathiwat province in southern Thailand.Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha last year said he had no information suggesting Islamic State members wereactive in southern Thailand, and a recent International Crisis Group report said there was no evidence jihadists were“making inroads among the separatists”.Southeast Asian news outlet BenarNews reported that four men were believed to be hiding in southern Thailand andquoted Malaysian counter-terrorism analyst Ahmad El-Muhammady as saying the events should be a warning for Thai authorities.“They have to start curbing this problem … before it blows from just several individual IS operatives into a full-fledged network that threatens national and regional security,” he said.
