News Story: Malaysia tightens border security after attacks in neighbouring countries

Kuala Lumpur (VNA) – Security at all entry points nationwide, including rat trails, will be enhanced to ensure terrorists on the run from the authorities of the neighbouring countries do not infiltrate into Malaysia, said Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Zahid, who is also Minister of Home Affairs, said on May 28 that the country will ensure that security at entry points and territorial waters is at the highest level with the engagement of the Marine Police, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, Royal Malaysian Navy and Eastern Sabah Security Command.
