Malaysian police said Wednesday they had prevented a major extremist attack targeting a series of sites around Kuala Lumpur, just a day before the country’s independence day.

Authorities detained three suspected Islamic State militant group (ISIS) operatives ahead of the national public holiday.

The country’s top police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said that the men had close links with a notorious Malaysian militant fighting for the group in Syria known as Muhammad Wanndy Muhammad Jedi, who they believe gave the three men orders to carry out the attacks.
