Ten terror suspects arrested in Malaysia allegedly have ties to a Nigerian suspected in the attempted Christmas Day bombing of a US airliner, a news report said Thursday.



Malaysia's home minister announced the arrests Wednesday, saying they were mainly foreigners linked to an international terrorist network.



They include four men from Syria, two from Nigeria and one each from Yemen and Jordan, said Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh, head of a rights group that assists people held under Malaysia's Internal Security Act, which allows indefinite detention without trial.



They were among 50 people arrested by police on Jan. 21 while attending a weekly Islamic class with a Syrian university lecturer at a home near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's largest city, Syed Ibrahim said. The others were later released.
