Terror arrests on the increase In the past year the UNODC says Indonesian arrests and deaths of terrorist suspects “more than doubled” to 170. But signs of the threat are still there. In January 2016, an attack in Jakarta was said to be the first IS assault with a suicide bombing that led to the deaths of four attackers and four civilians. In July, an attack on a restaurant in Bangladesh by IS left more than 20 people dead. Also in July a grenade attack at a nightspot in Kuala Lumpur’s Puchong district left eight people injured amid warnings of further attacks. While some reports blamed the attacks on local gangsters, Malaysian authorities arrested 15 people, including two policemen accused of providing support to IS elements. Authorities claimed the attack was carried out on orders of Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi, a Malaysian Islamic State fighter in Syria.

On Sunday, Nunes went on the talk shows to cast doubt on Schiff’s insistence that the panel will look at whether and how complicit any Americans tied to Trump may have been in the Russian hacking. “We are not going to go on a witch hunt against the American people, against American citizens,” he told CBS’s John Dickerson, insisting, “as far as I know our law enforcement authorities dont have that information.” Wherever the unfolding investigations around Russia, Trump and Putin lead, the swirling controversy has already had one inescapable effect in American politics: the return of Cold War-style rhetoric and ominous warnings about Russia. Three straight American presidentsBill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama – have started out hoping to forge a closer relationship with Vladimir Putin and ending up disillusioned and barely on speaking terms.

KUALA LUMPUR: Police detained a local youth for allegedly punching a Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) enforcement officer over a banner on cycling here today. The 10.15am incident was believed to have started when the victim and three colleagues were bringing down a banner inscribed with the words "Berbasikal, Kemudahan Awam Macam Sial DBKL Sibuk Sita Basikal" which was hung at the DBKL headquarters. Dang Wangi police chief ACP Mohd Sukri Kaman said action was taken after initial warnings and calls to the youth and a group of 13 of his friends to remove the banner was ignored. "While the victim and three colleagues were bringing the banner down, the suspect suddenly came up and punched the victim. The victim who was not seriously hurt managed to overpower the youth and later handed to the Dang Wangi police for investigation," he said when contacted.

Flash-flood warnings will continue through the weekend in many areas of the West Coast state, which has been hit this winter by a series of storms that have filled reservoirs, bringing respite following a severe five-year drought. Although the latest storm, which packed heavy wind-driven rain, was mainly affecting southern and central California, rain was also forecast to hit the San Francisco Bay Area in the north. Several inches of rain were forecast for parts of northern California. Residents of the city of Duarte, located in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains east of Los Angeles, were ordered to evacuate on Friday for fear of mudslides and voluntary evacuation orders were issued for some residents of Camarillo Springs, north of LA.

Al-Monitor- Following a period of silence on Iran, US President Donald Trump has in past weeks once again addressed the topic in tweets and statements. He has issued stern warnings to Tehran about its behavior in the region as well as its ballistic missile tests. Moreover, on Feb. 5, in an interview with Fox News , Trump called Iran the No. 1 terrorist state. What has Iran’s reaction been to these threats and fiery rhetoric? The supreme leader’s foreign policy adviser, Ali Akbar Velayati, was the first to react. On Feb. 2, he told reporters that Iran is not taking the threats seriously and that the behavior of the Trump administration will be detrimental to the interests of the American people. He also hinted at Washington’s limited options by remarking that the United States has not been able to achieve its aims in countries with much weaker military capabilities, alluding to neighboring Iraq and Afghanistan, while noting that Iran has a much stronger military than most countries in which the United States has failed.
