Malaysia
Since 11 September, there have been a series of arrests of Islamic militants suspected of having links to Osama bin Ladenís al-Qaeda network. Intelligence and law enforcement agencies in the region now say al-Qaedaís roots in South East Asia are stronger than was first suspected. Two of the alleged hijackers who took part in the 11 September, Khaled al-Midhar and Nawaq al-Hamzi, are said to have been filmed at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia with other known al-Qaeda operatives. Members of the rebel Malaysian Mujahideen Group (KMM) reportedly spent time in Afghanistan.
