JI Still Active in Singapore: Wong

The Jemaah Islamiah terror network is still active in Singapore and the Republic remains vulnerable to an attack, Home Affairs Minister Wong Kan Seng said on Monday. ‘We will always be on guard …Terror is not just in our parts but everywhere,’ he said, inspecting a new cargo screening system at Singapore’s main port. Mr Wong said the Government had not received any specific terror threats, but Jemaah Islamiah’s presence was worrying and the Republic remains ‘vulnerable’. Jemaah Islamiah is an Al-Qaeda-affiliated group blamed for the October 2002 bombings that killed 202 people on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, mostly Western tourists. Last week, Deputy Prime Minister Tony Tan said Singapore was on Al-Qaeda’s hit list because it had supported the United States-led war on terror.
