The police and some churches in Singapore have bolstered security measures for the Easter weekend, in the light of a suicide attack on an Indonesian church on Sunday as well as two foiled terror plots in the Republic in recent months. Associate Professor Kumar Ramakrishna, who heads the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research at RSIS, said JAD remains heavily Indonesia-centric. “The more likely concern locally would be the possibility of low-tech knife attacks by lone actors.” The two recently thwarted terror attacks in Singapore are a case in point, he added. The 20-yearold had planned to use a knife, and the teenager, a machete.
