SINGAPORE: Security personnel will be deployed for crowd control duties at Orchard Road, Clarke Quay and Gardens by the Bay, in view of the large crowds expected on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, the police said on Wednesday (Dec 20).

In a press release, the police said officers from the Protective Security Command, Emergency Response Teams and the Special Operations Command will also be patrolling during the festive period.

Security personnel may conduct checks on bags and personal items, police said.

Crowd control barricades and directional signs will also be put up to “facilitate safe and orderly dispersal”, which may be slow due to large crowds, they added.

Police advised the public to be vigilant against “opportunists who may commit molest”.

“There were previous incidents where individuals had sprayed foam into victims’ eyes before committing molest.”

The public is also reminded to look after their belongings at all times, be cautious when approached by strangers and avoid contact with unruly crowds.

KOTA DAMANSARA (Malaysia) — The Kota Damansara campus of a local university was cleared out this morning (Jan 22) over concerns of a possible bomb there.

According to a security officer, the students were directed to leave the compound around 11am following the discovery of an unattended bag.

Police personnel are currently on location, but refused to provide confirmation, telling reporters to await an official statement.

Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Mohd Zaini Che Din clarified during a press conference that there was no bag found, and that the evacuation was prompted by a reported bomb sighting that was made to the university in a phone call around 10am.

“They got a call from someone speaking in English. He (the caller) said he saw some Iranian guy putting a bomb in one of the toilets,” he told reporters.

Mr Mohd Zaini said that after being notified by the university, the police proceeded to evacuate the campus with over 2,000 students to conduct a full search of the premises.

“We had to evacuate and check because don’t know what toilet the bomb is in,” he explained.

The university reopened at 2pm and students have re-entered, but police presence remained heavy as investigations are still on going.

Two unattended bags gave bystanders cause for worry in separate incidents – at a bus terminal in Queen Street and at Woodlands Checkpoint – last Friday.

Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao on Saturday reported witnesses as saying they were afraid the bags – a backpack and a luxury handbag – contained explosives.

Police officers were seen surrounding the suspicious-looking bags, which were later claimedby their owners.

Mr Xu Wei Lin, who was at the bus terminal on Friday, said: “The Jakarta bombing was still fresh in everybody’s mind.”

On Thursday, a bomb went off in Jakarta, killing eight people and injuring more than 20.

Militants from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria terrorist group have claimed responsibility for the attack.

The owner of the bag found in Queen Street was a Mr Wong.

Two unattended bags cause bomb scare in KL shopping mall

Embedded image permalink

KUALA LUMPUR — Police deployed a bomb squad to a popular shopping mall here today (Jan 17) after the management reported the discovery of two backpacks left unattended on the second level.

According to Dang Wangi district police chief Asst Comm Zainol Samah, the bomb disposal unit arrived at the mall in the Bukit Bintang area around 1pm and proceeded to inspect the bags, which were found to contain clothes.

“The bags’ owners were South Korean tourists who arrived on January 11. They had left their bags there to go shopping,” he said in a statement today.

Mr Zainol said the tourists were released after they explained the incident satisfactorily to the police.

He also denied that the mall had been evacuated due to the bomb scare.

Police in Kuala Lumpur have been on red alert since Jakarta, Indonesia was attacked by suspected Islamic State militants this week.

The anxiety was compounded this morning when Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Mansor revealed that popular tourist and shopping spots in the Klang Valley were being targeted by terrorists.
