KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia's police said on Saturday that it had arrested five people, including a European employed as a teacher, on suspicion of links with militant groups like the Islamic State and al-Qaida.

Malaysia is on heightened alert after reports on Friday that ten Syrians linked to Islamic State entered neighboring Thailand in October to attack Russian interests.

Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar said in a statement that four of those arrested were foreign nationals and one was a Malaysian. The arrests were made between November 17 and December 1.
