In Malaysia, more than 400 suspected people have been detained during a counter-terrorism operation. Security in the city is being tightened up ahead of the Southeast Asian Games which begin in just over a week’s time. Authorities said they were targeting anyone with missing or fraudulent travel documents or who was believed to be affiliated with terror groups in Syria and Iraq.

Authorities say, those held in a series of raids in the capital Kuala Lumpur were mainly from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. Officials said, machines to make fake passports and to forge Malaysian immigration documents were among the items seized.
