Quotes

"You should take great care in the town of Sandakan and along the coastal area south to Tawau," the FCO said. "You should also take great care in areas east of Lahad Datu and around Semporna following the confrontation in March 2013 between insurgents and Malaysian security forces."
"I urge the government to take firm measures to upgrade security. Of course such bold intrusions and the blatant challenge to our security will hurt especially diving-related tourism business" he said
"Three of them are suspected to be involved in the recruitment and arrangement of militant members from this country to join the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil, which is also known as Isis) in Syria" Khalid had said, in what is believed to be a reference to Mahmud and his two friends.‎
