Warning of possible attacks by the Islamic State militant group (I.S.) in Asia, National Police Commissioner Neth Savoeun told his officers on Monday to tighten security and scale up counterterrorism efforts.
Speaking at a meeting at the National Police headquarters in Phnom Penh, General Savoeun said that based on information from the U.S. and Europe, I.S. may expand their attacks to Asia this year.
… While the threat posed by I.S. in Southeast Asia is real, and has grown since mid-2014, the risk should not be exaggerated, said Joseph Chinyong Liow, professor of comparative and international politics at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, to the U.S. House of Representatives’ homeland security committee in April.
