Hishammuddin condemns church attacks, warns culprits

(NST) HOME Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein today condemned the hurling of home-made bombs at three churches and warned that the government would not hesitate to use the Internal Security Act (ISA) against those responsible for the incidents.
"I strongly condemn these violent acts carried out by irresponsible persons, which has sparked anxiety among the people," he said, adding that the ministry would ensure the safety of everyone in the country, including foreigners.

He also said that the police would ensure that security was stepped up from time to time.

Hishammuddin was commenting on incidents of home-made bombs having been hurled yesterday into three churches -- the Metro Tabernacle Church in Desa Melawati, Kuala Lumpur, the Assumption Church in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, and the Life Chapel in Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

He said the ISA would also be used on those who staged demonstrations which could spark disturbances. - Bernama
