Malaysian Police are reviewing the security procedures at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport following Sunday's assault on Sri Lanka's High Commissioner to Malaysia Ibrahim Ansar.

This is being done to establish if there is a need to deploy more personnel or for changes to be made on security duty procedures.

Federal police Management Department director Datuk Abdullah said any changes on security procedures at the airport will be determined from an assessment by the police chief.

At the press conference, Datuk said police are also hopeful that the government would hire more civilian officers, especially professionals, to assist the force in their management.

He said police now have around 14,000 civilian officers, with less than 10 per cent from professional backgrounds.
