Singapore detains two men wanting to join IS group

An armoured police vehicle transporting four Bangladeshi nationals, prosecuted under a Singaporean anti-terror law, is seen leaving the state court in Singapore on July 12, 2016Singapore said Friday it had detained two men under its tough internal security law after discovering they intended to travel to Syria to fight for the Islamic State group. Rosli bin Hamzah, 50, and Mohamed Omar bin Mahadi, 33, are being held under the Internal Security Act, which allows for detention without trial, the Ministry of Home Affairs said in a statement. Rosli, who worked as a car washer, “became convinced that ISIS militants were fighting for Islam and that their beheading of ‘enemies’ was religiously permissible,” the ministry said, referring to the Islamic State group by another name.
