KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia has arrested and deported 10 foreigners suspected of trying to recruit university students to revive a regional terrorist network, police said Tuesday.

The foreigners were arrested over the past six months at different locations, national police chief Musa Hassan said. They allegedly tried to recruit students to work abroad for the al-Qaida-linked Southeast Asian group Jemaah Islamiyah.

Jemaah Islamiyah is blamed for several deadly attacks in the region, including the 2002 bombings on the Indonesian island of Bali that killed 202 people.
