SINGAPORE - Singapore on Friday banned the distribution and possession of Al Fatihin, a newspaper linked to the Islamic State militant group, after government officials repeatedly warned against terror threats.

The wealthy city-state saw its first case of terrorism financing this month, with four Bangladeshi men jailed for terms ranging from two to five years for funding attacks in their South Asian homeland.

"The Singapore government has zero tolerance for terrorist propaganda and has therefore decided to prohibit Al Fatihin," the Ministry of Communications and Information said in a statement.
