Accused by the West of harboring terror cells from the Middle East and under fire from its own citizens for failing to control crime, Prime Minister Najib Razak’s government was dealt a fresh blow when a bomb blast rocked the heart of Kuala Lumpur early on Thursday.
“It’s very worrying – the emergence of a new form of terrorism with no particular group identified or no known link with any political agenda,” Tian Chua, the Member of Parliament for Batu.
Saying it was too early to jump to conclusions on who could be the possible perpetrators, the Opposition politician urged the police to give top priority to the case.
“Hand grenades are not something easily available . How can criminals get access to such restricted material? Were such weapons smuggled in or stolen from the military?” said Tian.
